The Promise of Place Network is a grassroots effort to build support for people, schools, and organizations engaged in efforts that use natural and cultural contexts to help people to know to care about the places where they live. We are interested in helping educators find resources to help them get started, organizations connect across state boundaries, and professionals connect across disciplines.
It is free to join the network. Submit information about your organization by clicking here. Network members will be able to post events to our Calendar, publicize and spread the word about their organization, and connect with other professionals in the field.

Tunbridge Students Create Community Documentary
Eighth graders at the Tunbridge Central School are working with the Tunbridge Historical Society on an oral history project in which they will interview and photograph elders in the community to document the history of Tunbridge. For the final project, students will produce a documentary video in which they will talk about the Tunbridge resident that they interviewed, show photographs of the individual, and utilize sound clips from the interview. This video will be shown to the community at a public celebration.
