Sharing Ideas, Passion and Resources for Sustainable Land Stewardship at My Alma Mater

— Written By

Dean of Land and Professor of Forestry Dave Ellum at Warren Wilson College gave us a tour of the WWC Forest and we learned about his roll out of the new vision for the WWC campus which focuses on an integrated ecosystem that operates within the social, economic and ecological context of the region

Students at WWC work as part of their college experience, gaining very practical skills and experiences. The Forestry, Farm, and Garden Crews practice hands on sustainable management practices as part of their education at the college. We were invited to tour the campus and ask the questions that will assist us in further developing these practices and income opportunities in our region.

Email Dave Ellum to join the Conservation Exchange Newsletter for updates and events at the college.

I attended WWC from 1994-1999 and was on the staff supervising the Forestry Crew from 1999-2001 so it was good to see all the great activity taking place.
