Field notes from Matt Noyes, Grounds Manager:

Meadow grass in bloom at Stone Hill Center. The tall meadow grass offers exciting variations to the landscape and lessens the need for mowing, while providing a favorable habitat for fauna.

View from Moltz Terrace Stone Hill Center looking North towards the Green Mountains of Vermont. In the foreground stands a magnificent thicket of White Birch, Gray Birch, and  Aspen.

I hope you’ll visit Stone Hill to enjoy the view AND check out the El Anatsui exhibition. The contemplative galleries provide an undistracted environment where you can experience Anatsui’s transcendant sculptures. Strips of Earth’s Skin, especially, reminds me of the colorful, complex landscape surrounding Stone Hill Center.
