Green Mountain Club Long Trail Patrol members Kelly Walsh and Matt Wels join RETN's Scott Campitelli to discuss the project to build a wheelchair accessible trail to a spectacular view of Thundering Falls, the second largest waterfall in Vermont. Wels and Walsh have worked on the project in Killington, Vermont, providing a trail through the open flood plain, then over a bridge across the Ottauquechee River and through the northern hardwood forest to the base of Thundering Falls. The program includes the six-minute video "Thundering Falls Relocation" and Walsh and Wels talk about the many volunteer opportunities available with the GMC throughout the state and how to contact the GMC. The Thundering Falls relocation project has involved a number of groups, including the Long Trail Patrol, Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, federal funding through the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the National Park Service, and support from the Green Mountain National Forest. Contact information for The Green Mountain Club is 802-244-7037, 4711 Waterbury-Stowe Road, Waterbury Center, VT, 05677.
