NCMC student-researchers have been working with Sociology and Anthropology Professor Kerri Finlayson to investigate the history of the Siebert family, who previously owned 120 acres of what is now the NCMC Natural Area.

Attendees will learn about how these researchers became interested in this work, their approach to discovery, what they’ve learned about the Siebert family.
