Our 47th Long-Term Program Is In The History Books

It’s been a busy nine weeks, but now the parking lot is empty and the field school is quiet. Our 47th long-term program and the first half of our 21st year are complete.

A few thoughts about the semester:

The new digital assessment system worked amazingly well. Based in Google Docs, students were able to complete the academic work on tablets and phones (with the use of external keyboards for the phones). There are a few tweaks to be made for sure, but I’m really happy with how it worked out.

The clearing of the future South Moose Vegas Orchard is ongoing. It’s definitely a clearing now. There is still more work to do, as well as get it stumped, but the dream of an apple orchard and other agricultural projects is strong and growing.

When water levels were getting low before our final canoe expedition, we had a major rain event that brought the rivers right up. It was perfect.

The people on the course worked incredibly hard and accomplished so much. We’ve been so fortunate over the years to have had such amazing people participate in our programs.

Now its time to head home to my other job as a dad for a few weeks before the Summer Woodsman and Riverman courses in mid-July.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
