Stories & Galleries

The unfolding story of any place has countless facets. This emerging collection of stories about Burlington includes a wide range of media types and sources. Creators and contributors include community members, UVM faculty and students, and soon, students from local schools. While the range of topics here is broad, they have a consistent theme: Burlington's landscape and the community's relationship to it. Ideas for this page? Write to Inés Berrizbeitia at iib@uvm.edu.
