 Hello Friends of HOWL
Time for our annual LAND DAY at HOWL on SATURDAY OCTOBER 19th from 9:30 am to 4 pm and beyond if you wish.
Hot lunch provided by HOWL at 1 pm.
Activities include: posting the land, clearing and marking a trail to Grandmother Tree, pulling up invasive species to help our wildlife thrive, doing a dump run to get rid of junk, cut up fallen trees, or whatever you think needs doing as you look around inside or out.
We have a lots of fun practicing our large motor skills, enjoying the gorgeous fall foliage, building community and keeping HOWL alive and well.
Please bring work gloves, clippers, chainsaws, or an apple pie if you have them. Also wear bright red or orange since it is hunting season. (Even though the land is posted and it's not yet deer hunting with rifles season, we don't want to take any chances.)  EVERYONE WELCOME!!!!

Please  visit our FaceBook page and join the event to show your support:

Contact Laura at HOWL 434-3953 or Crow at 598-5868.

Howlin' Howl Music Jam!

Howlin' HOWL Music Jam!

Past HOWL Music/Singing Circle

 So maybe you didn't make it to Michigan this year, but no worries because HOWL's hills will be alive with the sound of our own music on SATURDAY AUGUST 17th.

Come to our Howlin' HOWL music jam Saturday August 17th from 2 p.m. to 4p.m. (all outside, weather permitting) followed by a pot luck dinner at 5 p.m. If you want to stay longer we may even work up the energy to have a bonfire and more music in the evening, but the main event is in the afternoon.

If you'd like to stay over and camp or obtain guest room space, please RSVP least three days in advance at so we can get an idea how many to expect and plan the tent sites.

 Everyone welcome. Bring an instrument, your voice, or a kazoo and most definitely your e for making music no matter what your skill level. Anyone can howl, remember that!

For more info call Crow at 802-598-5868 or email at

New Film About the Women's Land Movement

Special viewing of Lesbiana - A Parallel Revolution to be held at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 27th at Main Street Landing film space in Burlington, VT. This is part of a two film series exploring and documenting elements of the feminist movement.

HOWL founding mothers Glo Daly and Crow Cohen, still active on our collective today, are featured in Lesbiana.

Produced and directed by Myriam Fougère, this film takes us on a journey to meet the lesbian writers, philosophers and activists who were key players in creating a revolutionary sisterhood. Myriam encounters and documents the stories of lesbians who chose to live only among women, many of whom are in their 70's and 80's today, in her exploration of women's land/women's space.

Myriam will be present at the showing and we would love to have a HOWL contingent present. To RSVP or for further info, contact and CC HOWL at

Dottie the Pig, A Tale from Howl in Vermont

I recently came upon this little comic from our friend Elvis Bakaitis who visited the land a couple of summers ago...thought I would share it with you all...

Thanks, Elvis!

From Elvis' blog:

Elvis Bakaitis is a Brooklyn-based zinester and future librarian. In 2012, they co-organized the NYC Feminist Zinefest with Kate Angell. This year, Elvis gave talks on queer history and/or zines at The New School, Rutgers University, the Hedrick-Martin Institute (home of Harvey Milk High School), Gotham Professional Arts Academy,  Kearny High School in New Jersey,  Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse in Baltimore. They also facilitate the monthly feminist bookclub at Bluestockings Bookstore, and co-facilitate the Radical Librarians Reading Group. Currently, they are working on Homos in Herstory, a comics zine that focuses on 19th and 20th century queer history. You can find their zines at radical bookstores, and at their online Etsy shop, Captain Elvis’ Cartoon Shack.

Snow, Snow, Snow! Happy New Year!

Almost 30" of new snow in the last week up here at HOWL up on Crouching Lion Mountain in Vermont.

Today, the sun shines, glistening on the meadows. Deer trails zig-zag across the field near the pond and the Sundance pasture looks like a moonscape. Chick-a-dees are out calling to each other and all the farm critters are munching hay and playing in the snow. We are keeping the home fires burning and watching the icicles grow longer and longer. Winter is truly upon us here at Howl.

Laura spent time laying in some snowshoe trails, working on 1/2 mile, 1 mile and 2 mile loops around the property to deliver as many scenic vistas possible. When finished, the trails will encompass part of the Catamount Trail, some of the Wundekind Bike Trail, as well as HOWL trails leading up the Catamount Trail and up to Grandmother Tree. There are several beautiful stream crossings

It's gorgeous up here with all the snow. Come on up and take a snowshoe around the land. Happy New Year!!
