As head of St. Mark's, I feel a keen sense of responsibility, as does Laura, about the stewardship of our School's physical assets. Those assets include our buildings, and they also include our grounds. As for the grounds, Sandra has been a particularly valued collaborator in looking after the trees on our campus, many of which are magnificent and have beautified St. Mark's for generations. A major worry for Laura and me had been the proliferation of gypsy moths in the trees around our house and in the trees lining the road between our house and Route 85. Walking to and from the Main Building, we could hear moths eating the leaves, see the leaf damage, and see numerous eggs and larvae.
