Upcoming Lamoille River Paddlers’ Trail meetings

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Please join us to learn about an emerging initiative – the Lamoille River Paddlers’ Trail. 

Meetings are scheduled from 7:00 to 8:30 P.M on:

  • Monday, February 23rd in the Milton Municipal Building’s Community Room (43 Bombardier Rd)
  • Wednesday, March 11th, in the Hardwick Memorial Building (20 Church St – home to the municipal offices),

In partnership with the Vermont River Conservancy, and with support from the Green Mountain Fund and the Lake Champlain Basin Program, the Trail is an emerging, community effort to develop new opportunities for paddling and fishing along the Lamoille River. Our vision is of a network of well maintained river access points, primitive campsites, and portage trails from the river’s headwaters west to Lake Champlain. We recognize the region’s rich ecology and productive working landscape and seek to facilitate recreational use compatible with the river valley’s natural and social character.

At the meeting, you with have a chance to:

  • See the results of an assessment of river access points, portage trails, and potential campsites
  • Help craft a shared vision and guiding principles for the Paddlers’ Trail
  • Brainstorm priority on-the-ground projects for the upcoming year

Light refreshments will be provided. These meetings are a follow-up to a gathering held in Johnson, which brought over fifty community members together to discuss recreational priorities along the Lamoille River.

Please join us and help shape the future of this exciting endeavor!

Sincerely,

Doug Molde, Eric Nuse, Timothy Grannis, Kim Korner, and Noah Pollock
Lamoille River Paddlers’ Trail Steering Committee
