Thanks for coming to the 75th Annual Vermont Conference on Recreation and making it so special!

The 75th anniversary of this important parks & recreation gathering was worthy of celebration. CLICK on the image to the left for a brief history of our Vermont state recreation conference, set in the context of national parks & recreation landmark events, very thoughtfully put together by Muriel More, PhD Recreation Historian from South Burlington. Take a few minutes to read it, you will enjoy it!
