Green Mountain College welcomes Hunter Trowbridge as the new AmeriCorps native plant land manager. Hunter will be working with students and faculty to promote native plant species and control invasives on campus and at the Lewis Deane Nature Preserve. He’ll provide support for the Native Species Landscaping Policy and raise awareness of the importance of native plant species in our community. Hunter recently graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife and conservation biology. At URI he worked as a research assistant in the Wetland Ecology and Herpetology Lab. He also has field experience at the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Wells, Maine, and at Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Meeker, Colo. (Colorado State University). Hunter is interested in visiting classes to involve students in our campus lands. You can find him in his office in 337 Ackley.
