Welcome to the Stone Wall Initiative (SWI)

The SWI is an internet PORTAL to the signature landform of rural New England. This resource is a public service provided free of charge by expert Robert M. Thorson as part of his scholarly engagement for the University of Connecticut.  Though hosted by the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History, the SWI is explicitly regional, with a focus on all of New England.  Check back for new blog postings and updates.
