Burlington Underfoot: Bedrock, soil, ravines, and how the ancient origins of our physical landscape influenced centuries of city planning.

Walter Poleman travels across a billion years of history as we watch powerful glaciers and enormous tectonic collisions sculpt our landscape into the Burlington we recognize today. Jeff Marshall shows us a hidden ravine that once defined our interaction with Burlington's physical landscape.

Burlington Geographic, and this unfolding story of Burlington's place-based identity, is the current focus of the PLACE (Place-based Landscape Analysis & Community Engagement) Program, an initiative of The University of Vermont and Shelburne Farms. Additional partners include the Burlington Department of Parks, Recreation and Waterfront, RETN and Main Street Landing.
