Did you know human beings invented American Corn, or Maize? It’s true! Join the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and park interpreters at the Myles Standish State Forest to find out how hunter-gatherers in Mesoamerica (modern day Central America) transformed a barely edible grass into the world’s most popular and important staple food.
