" You go to nature for an experience of the sacred - to re-establish your contact with the core of things, where it’s really at, in order to enable you to come back to the world of people and operate more effectively. Seek ye first the kingdom of nature, that the kingdom of man might be realized.." -Willi Unsoeld, former TMI Field Instructor and member of the first American team to summit Mt. Everest

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.
