Welcome to our new staff
The turkey vultures are soaring overhead, like slow whilrling dervishes circling their way south. The meadows are alive with the sweet yellows of goldenrods and the happy purples of loosestrife. And the forests are frantic with squirrels gathering bitternut hickory nuts and red oak acorns. What a time of year to be out on the land! And our staff are putting in last minute preparations for our fall programs (Field School and Waystones). Our circle of staff has shifted slightly this year as we welcome in two new skilled and wonderful staff: David Ruffin and Emily Tomkins. You can read their bios (as well as bios of our other wonderful returning staff, Sophie, Mo, and Ross) on our staff page.
