Welcome to The Last Green Valley
The Last Green Valley is two things - it's the 35-town National Heritage Corridor in eastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts, and it’s also your member-supported, non-profit stewardship organization working locally to celebrate our heritage, conserve our natural resources, and respect our working lands.
After Mr. Bayer spoke about how he had been chosen to work on developing the atomic bomb, he set off several weeks of research and discussions of international ethics and responsibility. This song, Oh That Manhattan Project is the product of that study and I hope reflects accurately Mr. Bayer’s point of view.

Connecticut's 1997 State Troubadour, Sally Rogers, developed an innovative project to enhance the teaching curriculum by integrating arts with the humanities in the classroom. The 24 songs on this CD engage, enlighten and entertain people of all ages while communicating some of the great stories of The Last Green Valley. Rogers used oral histories, historic documents, and writings as sources for the lyrics of 15 of 24 songs. Through an artist-in-residence program, she enthused fourth grade classes from 3 area schools, who learned history through an artistic process that produced an additional 9 songs for the CD recording.
