Mad River Glen Wins Silver Eagle Award

Mad River Glen Wins Silver Eagle Award

posted: 01/01/2000

Environmental Education- Mad River Glen, Vermont

Prior to its purchase by the Mad River Glen Cooperative in 1995, the area was at risk of being acquired by a corporate resort operator. The Cooperative was organized for skiers and locals to preserve the area's heritage and landscape. It developed a sustainable recreational development plan that protects the integrity of the area's natural resources. It instituted naturalist programs to educate and raise awareness of the public about the conservation of the area's mountain environment.

The programs have grown from weekend snowshoeing programs to slide shows to weekend ecology and wildlife workshops to the Northern Forest Stewardship Conference, founded to create an open dialogue on how recreational facilities can foster the conservation of natural resources while remaining economically viable. (Finalists: Mammoth, CA; Crystal Mountain, MI)
