Introducing VRC’s 2021 summer swimming hole steward, Reilly Butler!

June 9, 2021

Reilly Butler, VRC's 2021 summer swimming hole steward.I have lived my whole life in Vermont, I grew up in Richmond and currently reside in Burlington. In 2019, I graduated from University of Vermont with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I spend my free time hiking, camping, kayaking, and of course visiting many of Vermont’s swimming holes. After the uncertainty that 2020 brought everyone, I’ve realized how vital Vermont’s hidden gems are and how important it is we protect them so others can continue to enjoy them. This summer I will be working with VRC and AmeriCorps to keep Vermont swimming holes protected and visitors safe.
