With the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away - there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more - there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.
The mission of the Vermont Huts Association is to provide an enriching and immersive outdoor experience for everyone. By collaborating with our partners in recreation, we will create a four-season hut network across the Green Mountain State to strengthen local communities and foster a deeper appreciation of our natural environment.
Check out our web site and see our first hut.
When finished, this will be the first hut owned and operated by the Vermont Huts Association. Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Waitsfield, VT is currently building the hut for us on their campus, where it will be stored through this upcoming winter. We are working with Green Mountain National Forest to locate and operate the hut under a special use permit on National Forest System lands. This project is currently under analysis by Forest Service staff with an expected decision in early 2018.
The most exciting part about our first hut is that YOU can help us build it. The total project budget is set at $60,000, and we’ve raised just over $24,000 as of 11/3/17. With your support, we can ensure we’re able to keep building the hut and finish it before this winter so it’s ready to go next summer!
