This is the third year SIPtemberfest is teaming up with the Stark Mountain Foundation as our beneficiary and we are so excited to have such a complementary partner!
Their mission is to preserve and protect the environment and ecosystem of General Stark Mountain, including its recreational access and historic value, and to support programs that promote and sustain that environment for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
General Stark Mountain is the home of SIPtemberfest and with the help of SMF, the base area will be getting some much needed renovations this summer and fall. Click here to learn more about that. This work unfortunately means that our 2020 event will be relocated but we are still supporting this organization and their efforts to help preserve our home. Even if we won’t be there this year!
Since its inception in 2000, The Stark Mountain Foundation (SMF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, has worked closely with organizations such as the Preservation Trust of Vermont, the Green Mountain Club and the Mad River Glen Cooperative to preserve the unique and historic environment of Stark Mountain.
