Last week I wrote about the 200th Anniversary of the Crawford Path and some of the trail crews who did the work. Among them are crews from two Vermont organizations, the Northwoods Stewardship Center and the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps.

Northwoods Stewardship Center is located in East Charleston, Vt. It is a non-profit educational, research and conservation service organization serving the communities of northern Vermont and New Hampshire since 1989. Today the Conservation Corps puts crews annually in the six New England states and provides more than 10,000 hours of environmental education and conservation training every year.
