Postcard from Vermont On June 9, 2012 By ecostewardsprogram The Rock Point thrust fault on Lake Champlain. Hiking the wet trail up Buck Mountain. Learning about the landscape of Addison County from the top of Buck Mountain. Our delicious, locally-sourced bag lunches. A Skype call with Christian Environmental Activist Bill McKibben. Our lovely Middlebury hosts: Dave, Innis, Avery & Claire Setting up camp in Dave and Claire’s backyard. The Mad River runs through Moretown. We were told the river ran as high as the prayer flags during Hurricane Irene. Our service project involved improving drainage efficiency in the backyard of this rebuilt home, which was destroyed by flooding during Hurricane Irene. The solar field at the Bishop Booth Retreat Center, where we stayed in Burlington. Our car-free day of biking & hiking in Burlington. Lunch on the shores of Lake Champlain. We returned to Boston for a conversation with Quaker peace activist John Bach in Cambridge. Our closing communion service. Eco-Stewards bracelet power! Our fearless (and very tired) program leaders: Dawn, Becky and Rob. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related

Looks like a great week of activity and sharing…and better weather than much of New England! Well done!
So awesome! Those 3 program leaders are the coolest! And I like the patterned eco-stewards bracelets!
