Proposal

To address these needs, we propose creation of The Center for Mountain Culture, a home to the outdoor recreation, health and wellness, conservation and sustainability efforts so important to the future of this community and to our world. Inspired by Plas y Brenin, The Banff Centre and The Aspen Institute, The Center for Mountain Culture (“The Center”) will create a hub for complementary efforts and foster a collaborative approach to advance Aldo Leopold’s 1949 definition of conservation: “a balanced relationship between Man and land.”

Office space will be available to organizations whose work falls within The Center’s purview. A shared workspace will be available to individuals—writers, photographers, freelancers, etc.—whose scope is similarly aligned. To encourage innovative legislative efforts, this space will also be available to Town and County elected officials who advance and promote The Center’s objectives.

Borrowing from the successful Brooklyn Boulders model, The Center will be developed around a climbing gym that doubles as community space, offering a dynamic, innovative home to events and gatherings.
