About this Exhibit
Working the Landscape: Vermont's Fields, Trails & Forests is a two-part exhibit.
The physical exhibit is on view in the lobby of Bailey/Howe Library from May—August 2014. The exhibit features displays on Vermont's fields, forests, and trails as well as policies that shape Vermont's landscape.
Also on display are quotes from respondents to our Working Landscape Survey. This survey was administered by FS 350 students in March 2014 via email to attendees of the December 2013 Summit on the Future of Vermont's Working Landscape at Vermont Technical College.
The digital exhibit showcases items on view in the library as well as contextual information about the historic and contemporary Vermont landscape. Links to additional resources are available throughout the site.

The students applied their disciplinary perspectives from the fields of anthropology, community development, geography, communications, sociology, food security, animal science, and network analysis in the research for this capstone project.
