In honor of the National Parks Centennial, the Boots to Boats program is connecting Vermonters with the parks in their own backyards.

Boots to Boats is celebrating the National Park Service Centennial with a summer-long series of wellness and recreation activities and special events, creating linkages between Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock, Vermont, Saint Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire, the Appalachian National Scenic Trail (AT), and the Connecticut River National Blueway/Paddlers' Trail.

Working with a broad set of partners, Boots to Boats will introduce the local communities to these outstanding resources in their own backyards and help people to Find Their Parks in diverse and fresh ways. Project partners include the Ottauquechee Health Foundation (OHF), the Green Mountain Club (GMC), the Upper Valley Trails Alliance (UVTA), the Connecticut River Paddlers' Trail, Chambers of Commerce and Recreation Centers, and organizations and individuals in the fitness industry.
