Under Governor Scott’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order for Vermonters, we have revamped our workshop and event offerings to be virtual for the near future. We hope you will join us from home to have fun together and learn about hiking, nature, and Vermont’s mountains. Please contact us with any questions. You can find recordings of select previous events here.
As we navigate the financial impact COVID-19 is having on the Green Mountain Club, we would appreciate any extra support you can give to ensure we can be prepared to hit the trail running when it is safe again. You can stay up to date with GMC’s COVID-19 response here.

Are you new to hiking and want to learn how to accomplish your goals? Join GMC’s Leave No Trace Master Educators on August 20 at 7 pm to learn everything you need to know about Leave No Trace for day hiking. You’ll learn how to plan a hike, what to bring, and how to be successful once you’re out on the trail. We’ll share stories from the trail and explain how to be prepared for your next adventure on the Long Trail.

Tuesday, September 1, 7PM – 8PM
While most hikers and backpackers focus on the ground below their feet, there is a whole universe to explore if we look up. The night sky holds mythological stories, shooting stars, the international space station and billions of galaxies, to name a few. Join the Green Mountain Club and Jack St. Louis, President of the Vermont Astronomical Society, to learn more about celestial navigation, how to use a star finder and many more of the wonders of the night sky.
Instructor: Jack St. Louis, Vermont Astronomical Society
