SLT Welcomes 2 New Directors
Two new board members were elected by Stowe Land Trust’s membership at the 30th Annual Meeting & Anniversary Celebration held on Sunday, September 9th at Strawberry Hill Farm in Stowe. Beth Bradford and Amy Stewart will join twenty existing board members responsible for governing the community conservation organization. Each year SLT has a limited number of openings available in its volunteer board. New members are recruited based on an identified need within the organization. The diversity of the Board is meant to represent the broad perspectives of our community and strengthen SLT’s position as a community asset.
Beth grew up in Stowe and has always appreciated the physical and aesthetic beauty of this town. She and her husband, Bart, raised three children here and over the years, they have taken advantage of the endless outdoor opportunities Stowe has to offer. Beth is a teacher at Stowe Elementary School where she has worked for nearly 20 years. She enjoys instilling a love for the outdoors with her students, and looks forward to working with Stowe Land Trust to protect the places she loves, so that they can be enjoyed in the future.
Amy moved to Stowe in 2010, happily leaving behind the stresses of eight years of urban life in Los Angeles and Paris to seek refuge in Stowe’s mountains, forests, dirt roads, incredible trails, and clean air. You’ll often see Amy on the run, whether on Perry Hill or Adam’s Camp’s trails, competing around New England for the Green Mountain Athletic Association or chasing her 4-year-old son around the Mill Trail or Wiessner Woods. In addition to having volunteered for SLT as an advocate for conservation funding at the Vermont State House and planting trees along the Little River, Amy also serves on the parent board at Apple Tree Learning Center. Amy works for Green Mountain Coffee and looks forward to serving as a steward and strategist for Stowe’s conservation efforts as an SLT Director.
