Our Work

Volunteer Profile

Abby Miller joined us as a volunteer this past January. Since then, she has reorganized most of our library, researched wildlife habitat conservation, and started developing new content for our online Community Planning Toolbox. All in just two months!
Abby is recently retired from the National Park Service, where she specialized in natural resources management. She has lived in Shelburne for the last four years, where she is a volunteer for and on the board of directors of SCHIPS Treasure, an organization that raises grant money for projects focusing on human needs.
Abby’s interest in Smart Growth Vermont is a natural outgrowth of her past involvement in environmental organizations at the national level. She feels that our progressive but practical approach to land use is highly effective at protecting the landscape values that drew her to Vermont.
Thank you, Abby!
