Seasonal Trail Use Reminder

With trapping and turkey season in full swing and deer season around the corner, we’d like to remind our community and members about our seasonal trail use policy. Unless a trail is on the map as part of our summer trail network, it is closed. The Outdoor Center maintains agreements with private landowners to use certain corridors of their land in the winter as ski and snowshoe trails, but outside the snowy season, there is no public trail use on those lands.

Former GRP Athletes Compete at World Rowing Championships

This past week the Green Racing Project had five former athletes representing the United States down in Sarasota, Florida at the World Rowing Championships. Held for the first time in the US in 25 years, we had some fantastic racing from our former GRP members.

John Graves and Ben Davison raced in the Men's Double Sculls after having prepared for the World Championships at Craftsbury this summer, coached by former GRP athlete Peter Graves.

After winning their rep and advancing to the A/B Semifinal, they then moved to the B final where they finished second, placing 8th overall. Elizabeth Sonshine raced in the Women's Quadruple Sculls where they ...
