I just arrived back to the office after a day on the road visiting the many Vermont businesses that sell our maps and books. I don’t have long to get you this message, as I need to pack up their orders; then it’s time to switch gears, put on my blaze-orange vest, grab my tree-pruning saw, and head out into the field to train a new Volunteer Corridor Monitor.
We here at the Green Mountain Club are a busy group, performing many different tasks to help protect the Long Trail System and create an optimal trail experience. Please show your support of the Green Mountain Club with a donation today!
As the GMC’s Publications Assistant, I work with the extraordinary team of volunteers on the Publications Committee to create, revise, and distribute our well-loved and iconic publications, such as The Long Trail Guide, Snowshoeing in Vermont, and a series of regional hiking maps. We strive to deliver high quality hiking content in an efficient and elegant manner.
I also assist Pete Antos-Ketcham with our Land Stewardship efforts. This program is integral to the protection of the land corridor surrounding the Long Trail and Appalachian Trail in Vermont. With over 70 volunteer corridor monitors overseeing and maintaining more than 35,000 acres of land, you can imagine how challenging things can get. I connect new volunteers with a land parcel, introduce them to the parcel boundaries, and train them in monitoring techniques such as land navigation. I also locate segments of boundary that may be disappearing, paint boundary lines, and create maps so we can better manage our resources.
Everything that the Green Mountain Club does – from producing engaging guidebooks and monitoring corridor boundaries to repairing trails and educating the public – is made possible because of donors like you. Please donate today!
Well, I better hit the trail to meet that new corridor volunteer! Thank you for supporting the club.
