We are excited to welcome Dany Boyle to the Stowe Land Trust team! Dany joins us as our new Youth and Volunteer Projects Coordinator, serving through VHCB AmeriCorps.
This new position is the next evolution of our Summer Naturalist program, with a focus on engaging with local schools and youth audiences. In her role, Dany will work with schools and community partners to create deep programs and projects centered on access to local foods and farms, climate resilience, and more. She will also work to grow Stowe Land Trust's dedicated corps of volunteers, and build our capacity to care for conserved land.
Growing up along the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey’s only ski-town cemented a deep relationship of respect and gratitude between Dany and the natural world. She is excited for the opportunity to build relationships with the Stowe community through a shared love of nature and mutual goals to build a sustainable future.
Dany arrived in Vermont in 2021 after completing a B.S. in Biology at Fairleigh Dickinson University then an M.S. in Neuroscience at The Ohio State University. She lives in Montgomery Center with her many roommates, who supply her with support, and many energized pets, who supply her with endless hiking companionship. Outside of the land trust Dany can be found hiking The Long Trail, snowboarding, chasing local waterfalls, and teaching science courses with the Community College of Vermont.
