Lyn DuMoulin has been concerned with population issues for most of her life. It’s been so long, she can’t quite remember the moment she realized it was a problem, or even how she first got involved with ZPG over 50 years ago – only that “It’s common sense. It’s a numbers game. There’s no way to sustain rapid population growth.” When asked if perhaps a friend introduced her to ZPG, she says: “No – but I certainly know I introduced many of my friends to ZPG!”
Ms. DuMoulin started her career as a speech and language pathologist, after which she obtained her master’s degree in conflict management from Antioch College. She was a divorce mediator for some time, but found that occupation to be more stressful than she liked, so she transitioned into teaching conflict management and interpersonal communication at Champlain College. She describes teaching as her “true calling,” and happily taught at the college for 20 years. “I especially enjoy young people at that age,” she says. “I was able to reach them.”
She incorporated population issues into each one of her classes by uniquely connecting overcrowding with higher levels of stress. She would ask her students to remember moments where they felt overwhelmed by being surrounded by too many people, and to connect those feelings of stress with the environment. She would then teach them ways of coping with that kind of stress, while also teaching them about the bigger picture of overpopulation and its negative impact on people, animals, and nature.
She fondly remembers taking a trip to Burlington, VT with a group of friends and running into one of her old students who was working at a store while they were out shopping. The student gave her a big hug and told her she loved her class. Ms. DuMoulin asked her, “What did you get out of the class?” to which the former student responded: “You were the first to introduce me to the population problem.”
In her retirement, Ms. DuMoulin paints full-time, usually landscapes. She says, “From the natural world flow my paintings. I love to paint people, canoes, mountains, and the black waters of the great North Country.” Her artwork has won an award for excellence from the Vermont Watercolor Society, of which she is a member.
