With hiking season well under way, I thought I would take some time to update you about our camps at one of my favorite places, Wheeler Pond. Since 2003, the Green Mountain Club has owned and managed two cabins that have provided a setting for people to enjoy the natural beauty of the Northeast Kingdom.
About a month ago, we made the difficult decision to close Beaver Dam Cabin for structural safety reasons. (Hadsel-Mares, is still open for rent year round.)
These camps at Wheeler Pond are a special place and we are excited about the opportunity to rebuild Beaver Dam Cabin with an improved structure that honors the history and feel of the original cabin. We are lucky to have a loyal community that use and enjoy Wheeler Pond Camps – it’s one of the reasons they are so special!
I look forward to sharing our plans as staff and leadership move forward to begin the rebuilding process for Beaver Dam Cabin.
P.S. If you want to help us rebuild Beaver Dam Cabin, you can donate to the project.
Thanks to Common Good Vermont, across the state of Vermont, individuals are spending the day donating to the essential nonprofit organizations.
If you give today to support the Green Mountain Club‘s work to protect and maintain the Long Trail and Northeast Kingdom Trails, you will be entered to win some great prizes. (Hint: they involve hiking!) You can check out our Facebook page for details.
Art in the Mountains
Thanks to a collaboration with the Vermont Arts Council, we have a great list for you that combines two of Vermont’s best attractions: hiking and the arts.
Learn more on how you can fill your days on the trail and reward yourself with a nearby gallery, studio, or festival.
Vehicle Donations Received!
Last month we asked you to help us with vehicles to complete our work on the trail. And what a response we got!
Thank you to Dave Birmingham, from 802Cars.com for donating three vehicles from his Subaru, Toyota, and Honda Dealerships, and to Scott Holloway from Holloway Buick, GMC, Cadillac in Portsmouth, NH for donating a one-ton GMC pickup truck!. These vehicles are essential to the work we do to protect and maintain Vermont’s hiking trails.
We still need a few more vehicles for our crews. Do you have a vehicle that can help the Long Trail? Email Matt Krebs.
