The St. Albans Bay Storytelling Project was organized and coordinated by Denise Smith, a graduate student at the University of Vermont’s Rubenstein School. “My aspiration for this project is to open a space for community dialogue, storytelling, inquiry, and reflection about the relationship, history, culture, and change of the environment and people of St. Albans Bay. This project is intended to create an intersectional collection of stories about St. Albans Bay and the differentiated experiences in this watershed, while highlighting through relationships how this environment has shaped the collective spirit and wellbeing of this community.” The storytelling event was held on June 10, 2018 at Kil Kare state park.
