Swarthmore in the Little City

We had a lovely fall and were glad to host the annual gathering of Swarthmore in the City.  So many alums have moved to Vermont because of its beautiful environment and proactive social justice work. We feel honored to share in the excitement. The forestry management program designed to improve habitat for endangered bats is well under way. We are trying to combine the physical aspects of the labor (crawling around the forest floor eradicating invasive species), the hopeful dimensions (that highly desirable roosting trees will become more accessible and the bat population will begin to increase), and the meditative aspects of this kind of work. We are learning slowly but steadily.
