Hike Leaders Needed for GMC Winter Trails Day, March 2

The Green Mountain Club’s 23rd Annual Winter Trails Day will be held Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM at Flood Brook School, 91 VT Route 11, Londonderry, VT. More information here.

As always, this is a largely volunteer-operated event so we’re reaching out in hopes that you and your friends and family will be interested in volunteering to lead a hike, run an activity, or generally help staff and participants throughout the day with various needs.

For hike leader opportunities, please see the table below, which shows just the hikes that still need leaders. If you are interested in leading a particular hike, please contact  Rob Rives to sign up.

Our remaining on-site volunteer opportunities include the following: Kids Activities, and Animal Tracking and Winter Preparedness Workshop Instructors. Please let Rob know if you are interested in taking on one of these responsibilities during Winter Trails Day.
