Richmond, Vermont - UVM Graduate Students James Barnes and Delia Delongchamp are developing a new program with UVM, SCA and other land conservation programs.
From their Graduate Research Master's Project:
The program adheres to a "service-learning" framework, combining teaching of core knowledge and skills in land stewardship with in-field service to land conservation organizations. The service component ensures that interns know how to properly monitor and assess properties held under conservation easements or other forms of public ownership, including record keeping, field surveys, and reporting of property status and management needs.
