Skirack in Burlington—co-owned by SB residents Zandy Wheeler and Karen George (with fellow owner Spike Clayton)—took part in the ‘Save the Bolton Backcountry Raffle’ which raised $5,500 for the Vermont Land Trust’s initiative to conserve more than 1,100 acres of land in the Bolton Backcountry.
The Vermont Land Trust is seeking to raise 1.85 million dollars towards the purchase of the land by March 2013. They are within $50,000 of their goal. Once purchased, the land will be transferred to the State of Vermont as an addition to Mt. Mansfield State Forest and protected forever for the benefit of public recreational use, wildlife habitat and area water quality. For more information, visit www.vlt.org/bolton
