Years Serving communities

Since 2001, Willowell has grown from an 18-student alternative high school program in an unused school building to a youth environmental education center and conductor of vital community resource initiatives, including community gardening, home heating fuel assistance, and a network of open access art and nature trails.

Commitments to stewardship and partnerships with Vermont’s Nature Converservancy and Department of Fish & Wildlife from 2010 to the present have restored and conserved wetlands and forest that are vital to Champlain Valley wildlife. This is part of a larger 400 acre reserve in the Pond Brook/Lewis Creek Watershed.
