We are excited to share the Craftsbury Outdoor Center‘s 2023 BKL Festival logo and theme description with you all! The awesome logo was designed by the multitalented Craftsbury Ski Club coach, Jake Barton. We’ll continue to share Festival updates here in Breaking News, through our Trail Tales youth newsletter, and on social media (Facebook and Instagram). You can also keep tabs on the Festival website HERE. But for now, transport yourself to the snowy season by reading on…
North Woods in Winter: It’s early March. We’ve been blessed with one of our big March snowstorms and you’re stepping into your ski boots, ready to cruise through a silent winter woodland. The woods seem to be sleeping, just waiting for the first hints of spring. Perhaps on your ski you will duck beneath sap lines or navigate a trail closure due to logging. Were you ever curious about what’s happening out there as you ski through the stands of maple or groves of cedar and other softwoods?
Come with us on a trek through the North Woods in Winter this March as we highlight how, from sustainable forestry to maple sugaring, our northern forests are a fantastic recreational space and a vital working landscape.
We’ll be working with area maple producers and foresters to take you on a journey through this diverse and invaluable resource. We hope that when you leave us on Sunday afternoon, you’ll have a better understanding of how our forests are more than just trees, and how each of us can be better stewards of this landscape that we all enjoy.
