May 15, 2014 – Anna McAuley of Arlington, Va., (left) and Sarah Schneider of Wheeling, W.Va., plant native holly in Ireland’s Connemara National Park as part of a reforestation project to reestablish native woodlands. Students in the semester-long Culture, Natural Resources, and Design in Ireland course visited Ireland during spring break. They worked with students from the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, with which the college has an ongoing collaboration, on the reforestation project as well as on developing interpretive materials for the project.
