For most organizations ‘change' is good.  For the Green Mountain Club it's a different matter.  The club's primary mission is to maintain the 273 mile Long Trail, which stretches the length of Vermont along the spine of the Green Mountains.  And that involves protecting it from change.  One reason generations of hikers have been drawn to the trail is the timelessness of the experience of hiking it. 

Ben Rose is the Executive Director of the Green Mountain Club. He spoke with VPR's Jane Lindholm about the challenges of maintaining and protecting the trail.
