Fort Ticonderoga launches its final “Fort Fever Series” of 2015 with a special presentation by Assistant Director of Interpretation, Cameron Green, who will provide a sneak peek into all of the new ground being broken in the King’s Garden for the 2015 season, as well as some of the great structures and stories recently uncovered. The program takes place on Sunday, April 19 at 2 pm in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center at Fort Ticonderoga. The cost for the program is $10 per person and will be collected at the door; free for Members of Fort Ticonderoga.
Cameron Green, Assistant Director of Interpretation, has been a member of Fort Ticonderoga staff since 2011. He has incorporated his wealth of expertise in 18th-century studies into modern horticulture, providing a dynamic perspective to the King’s Garden. “This program explores the Pell family’s purchase of Fort Ticonderoga in the early 19th century, and outlines the growth and development of the landscape over the next 200 years” says Green. “We will walk the grounds to discover the continuing story of Ticonderoga, after the guns had ceased firing. ‘A Layered Legacy’ will outline the flowering of agriculture, tourism, and hospitality as told through the King’s Garden.”
This program will reveal the important story of Fort Ticonderoga’s landscape and define how the campus will grow and develop for generations to come. One day prior to “A Layered Legacy” is the Fourth Annual Garden and Landscape Symposium, which focuses on practical, easy-to-implement strategies for expanding and improving your garden or landscape.
