Meet Rock Point Volunteers: Katharine Montstream, Trail Steward
Katharine Montstream (two a’s in katharine two t’s in montstream) is a landscape painter from Burlington, Vermont. She grew up painting in Old Wethersfield, Connecticut, and then went to college to ski at the University of Colorado Boulder. After Katharine graduated, she moved east and found Burlington to be a great fit with the lake, Bernie Sanders as Mayor, and skiing nearby.
Being a founding Rock Point volunteer trail steward is “a dream come true,” as her husband describes. Having long loved the woods, trails and being amongst the trees, a weekly commitment to Rock Point is a perfect match for Katharine. After her trail work, you might find her painting down at Canoe Landing with her Australian Shepherd, Taz.
You can see Katharine’s work at Montstream Studio, 129 St Paul Street, Burlington.

The mission of the Rock Point Center is to be a welcoming sanctuary of spirituality, creativity, community, education, training, and environmental stewardship.
