We recently spent some time working and traveling in the picturesque state of Vermont. First, we went to Middlebury College to work with over 100 student trip leaders. These students are responsible for leading several trips for incoming freshmen. Next, we drove through several Vermont towns that looked like they should be on postcards (and probably were) and arrived in Castleton. At Castleton we met up with a former Leave No Trace intern, Nick Korda, and spoke with several students at Castleton State College.
The Eco-Fest in Burlington was the final stop for our little tour of Vermont. Put on by the Outdoor Gear Exchange, the Eco-Fest was a 5 hour event in the downtown area that featured a local band and one of our favorite partners, Chaco! We spent the afternoon chatting with the locals about Leave No Trace.
