Dustin Potter, a former Natural Resources student, came back to the HACTC to show the current Natural Resources students how to climb a tree. Dustin is an independent tree climber subcontracted by many tree service companies around the Upper Valley.
The HACTC loves it when its alumni come back to the school and love it even more when they get to interact with our current students. In this case, the students learned a great deal by getting out of their comfort zones a bit and immediately seeing the good results of doing so. The pictures are a bit blurry as neither Dustin nor the students - due to the excitement at hand - stood still long enough to get a clear picture. However, they still show why this first week back to school will be a memorable one for the Natural Resources students.
