Bill Torrey: The Storytelling Logger 10/15/15 - 10/15/15
In connection with the exhibit Shedding Light on the Working Forest, logger and award-winning storyteller Bill Torrey tells dramatic tales of his logging days and his awakening to sustainable stewardship of one of Vermont’s greatest natural resources. Bill Torrey is a sixth generation Vermonter who has spent 40 years working and playing in the woods. He began logging at the age of 15. His life experiences run the spectrum of the logging trade from large volume, high impact logging, to light on the land, ecologically sustainable timber harvesting. His stewardship of the land is regarded as some of the best practiced in the state of Vermont. Since retiring from the logging industry in 2013, Bill has been writing of his experiences that led him from logging in the extreme to logging for the forest. He has told stories throughout Vermont, winning NPR Moth Story Slam competitions and performing on the floor of the State House.
