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.

Sutton History Questing Project
Elementary students collaborate with the local historical society to investigate their town's history. Students conduct interviews with selectmen, the chief of police, the town historian, and storytellers, and explore their community's architecture and physical features. The study culminates in an art show and the creation of a "Quest" — a treasure hunt that highlights the town's history.
