Nazareth College Group Spruces Up the Earth Shelter

Last month a dedicated group of students from Nazareth College in Rochester spent their spring break at The Mountain Institute. Most of their energies were concentrated on the Earth Shelter: scraping the ceiling, painting the walls, and rearranging the furniture. It's finally starting to look like a real office in here. They also had some time left over to make delicious bread and yogurt and spend some time strolling around the property to learn about the natural history and ecology of Appalachia.

They kept their own blog going while they were here:

A huge thank you to all the students who volunteered their time to make this place look great.
