Project Description: Volunteers will help build the Cross Vermont Trail, a four season multi-use path spanning the width of Vermont. The crew will build small bridges, drainage ditches, stone structures, and surface parts of the trail with gravel to make it universally accessible. We are “connecting communities, their schools and the natural areas in between.” Join us on this exciting endeavor!
