Event to Celebrate Life of Monique Anderson

All are invited to an event on Sunday, April 27, 2014 to celebrate the life of Monique Pia Anderson—organic gardener, landscape architect, building and land conservationist, and lover of work and learning. In 2003, Monique and her husband Lester Anderson became the first landowners to donate a forever-wild easement to Northeast Wilderness Trust, thereby protecting over 100 acres in Lincoln, VT as wilderness.

The celebration at the Lincoln, VT town library (222 West River Rd.) from 2:00 to 3:15 pm will include a presentation by Middlebury College’s Steve Trombulak, Professor of Environmental and Biosphere Studies, entitled “The Role of Ecological Reserves in Periods of Rapid Ecological Change.”

Following Professor Trombulak’s presentation, there will be the first public showing of Lester C. Anderson’s photographic tribute to Monique entitled “Farm Work.” The celebration will close with a community planting and dedication of a white oak tree in memory of Monique.

Middlebury College and the Colby Hill Ecological Project of Vermont Family Forests will host the event. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact David Brynn at (802) 453-7728.
