Celebrating Women’s History Month: Miriam Jarvis Johnson Carreker

March is Women’s History Month — and at UVLT, that means it’s time to recognize the many women in conservation who have helped preserve and share the wild spaces in our community. The Upper Valley has been home to a number of remarkable women conservationists — but Miriam Jarvis Johnson Carreker stands out for her bravery, adventuresome spirit, and vision. This week, we’re highlighting Linny Levin, a remarkable teacher and naturalist who introduced countless Upper Valley children to the magic of the outdoors — and who we remember through the Linny Levin Trail in Thetford’s Zebedee Wetland.

Mark Hooper wrote to the Cornish Conservation Commission late last fall explaining that he’d decided to conserve his land “simply because it seemed like the right thing to do.” Mark’s grandmother’s family (the Hildreths) had been granted about 300 acres in the late 1700’s — land that stretched from the Connecticut River to Blow-Me-Down Brook in the northwest corner of Cornish.
