Event Details

Winds of Change: The Farms of Ogemaw County
with Stacy Radecki, Ogemaw Heights High School
A free live zoom lecture by the Historical Society of Michigan, through our Library membership.

At Ogemaw Heights High School, students of Ms. Radecki's U.S. history classes are working with the school's STEM department on a cross-curricular project to research how local farms have changed over the years. The students were able to use drone technology to capture what nine county farms look like today and show how they have changed since the 1980s. Several local farmers came to class to share the histories of their properties and help the students gain a better knowledge of their town. Thus year, the project's focus is on centennial farms and their impact on the community.
