How Knowing Our Land Enhances Our Understanding of the World

Charlton Perry, director of outdoor education, believes our physical campus is St. Stephen’s greatest asset. “In addition to being a great resource for teaching, recreation and contemplation, its beauty is unparalleled,” he said.
For Perry, whose myriad wilderness program and land management responsibilities revolve around getting students outside, the current remote learning model has challenged him to think up new ways to spread his gospel of the land. Soon after teachers and staff started gearing up for the new academic year, Perry began inviting small, physically distanced groups of employees to join him for tours of our 370-acre campus. A number of faculty and staff have eagerly signed up to learn more about our unique campus environment. Most participants have been interested in way-finding and learning about the flora, fauna, geology and history of the land.
