We're taking the Climb outside and around Vermont in 2021. We’re moving onward and upward, safely and responsibly, so that we can make an impact now to ensure a healthier future for all. Join us outside and around Vermont for a reimagined Climb this summer from July 1 — September 1. All are welcome to share in this adventure, whether you’re new to our mission or a veteran Climber. Just like our indoor event, how you climb outdoors is up to you. You can race to the end or take it at your own pace throughout the summer as well as pick and choose the climbs you want to complete from our list of 21 Vermont trail locations. You will be able to Climb Your Way with our new Climb Vermont challenge while making a difference in the lives of those living with lung disease.

The Burlington-based arts collaborative Shelter Cultivation Project is celebrating the culmination of its year-long collaborative arts project with a gallery exhibition and pop-up shop starting Thursday, August 5 at the Karma Bird House Gallery in Burlington, Vt. The show and shop will run through November 1. The Opening reception on August 5 is open to the public from 6-8 pm. The Exhibition & Pop Up Shop are open daily from 8 am - 3 pm (closed Sundays). The Shelter Cultivation Project was started by local artist Shawn Dumont at the start of the COVID pandemic as a way to connect artists during an isolating time, with the overall goal of strengthening the broader arts community in Vermont. The response from artists was so strong that the project quickly expanded its reach throughout the northeast and even internationally.
