Catamount Trails Association

Champlain's Center for Service & Sustainability has pair with the Service Track of the LEAD program to expand the community initiatives available to students. One event that happened from this collaboration was the CS&S's involvement with the Catamount Trails Association.

In October 2012, CS&S rented a bus and took 17 students to the Catamount Trail Association Work Day. The group was comprised of 15 upperclassmen and two first-year students. They spent their Saturday morning carving pumpkins for the Haunted Forest, a Halloween tradition of combining the community with theater in the woods of Williston, Vermont . The students responded very well to the trip. They enjoyed the time they had and we were able to help out a local organization.
