Many of CCV’s course offerings have a field component, taking students out of the classroom and into the Vermont landscape. This summer, students and faculty from Forest Ecology, Landscape in Art, and Natural History of Vermont reflect on the value of bringing education outside.
Spring semester has come to a close, and CCV is counting down the days to commencement! In this busy month’s roundup, we’re proud to share news that reflects the hard work, engagement, and curiosity of folks from around the state.
“I think it’s a special thing about Vermont: people care about their land.” Having grown up in Richmond, Vermont, CCV environmental science major Jesse Littlefield knew this long before embarking on her Professional Field Experience (PFE) internship last fall.
Happy Spring! Er, we hope? Fickle weather aside, it’s certainly shaping up to be a prolific season full of great ideas, inspiring stories, and exemplary work from all corners of our CCV landscape. Happy reading, and don’t forget to share your Notables at email@example.com!
For environmental scientists, Vermont’s woods, mountains, lakes and streams are a goldmine of research opportunities. And for students wanting to get into the field, there’s no better path than moving seamlessly from CCV into the University of Vermont Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Studies.
