The Sterling Tools class participated in a weekend service project on the Long Pond Trails for The Nature Conservancy this past November. 24 students as well as faculty member Allison Van Akkeren had a great time and accomplished a lot of really important work for that trail system.
Sterling President, Matthew Derr, received a letter from Heather Furman the Vermont Chapter, Director of TNC acknowledging our efforts:
“Members of our Long Pond Stewardship Committee in Greensboro have reported to me about the heroic work performed by a group of Sterling students in clearing three trails on our Long Pond Natural Area recently….The Nature Conservancy’s Vermont chapter is most grateful to Sterling for this contribution…We look forward to future collaboration with Sterling College in making The Conservancy’s natural areas accessible to the nature-loving public.”
We certainly enjoy the acknowledgement but, if you look at the faces of those that did the work, you can see that the time out in the woods was the best reward!
