Vermont’s Environmental Stewardship College to Train Veterans in Sustainable Forestry.
Craftsbury Common, Vt. — Veterans face significant challenges in entering the civilian workforce, especially in natural resource based businesses. Both unemployment and underemployment remain high among New England’s veterans. To help solve this issue, Sterling College is offering a comprehensive certificate program in low impact forestry that will teach woodlot management from an ecological perspective.
“Sterling College is honored to be able to support veterans, and is committed to helping them achieve their educational and career goals,” said President Matthew Derr. “We look forward to working with veterans as they learn to manage woodlots sustainably, while giving them the tools they need to enter the forestry business sector and become environmental stewards.”
