This episode we're joined by Kathleen White and Steve Shriner, members of the Friends Of The West River Trail, an organization that was founded to create accessible nature trails here in southern Vermont. The goal of the organization is to create a contiguous trail system that connects the towns in the west river valley of Vermont, and provide everyone in that area with access to the natural world. During our chat, we cover the founding of the organization, some of the experiences we've had while recreating on the trail system and the river that runs along it, the ecology of the river, and the varied biomes that people can interact with while walking the trail. It was a great conversation about an incredible organization that's doing the work of making the outdoors accessible to everyone, no matter their ability and experience in the natural world.
