Munter Trails to be Dedicated October 20 on Raquette River at Clarkson University

Members of the North Country community are invited to attend when Clarkson University dedicates the new Munter Trails, located along the Raquette River, on Saturday, October 20, at 2:30 p.m.

Munter TrailsThe program will take place near the canoe house on the Clarkson University campus off Clarkson Avenue. Clarkson President Tony Collins will lead the dedication ceremony with Village of Potsdam Mayor Steve Yurgartis also participating. Light refreshments will be available.

The Munter Trails are an integral element of Clarkson University’s master plan, made possible by volunteers who gave their time, talent, and resources during the Evolution to Excellence (E2E) Campaign.

Clarkson’s newest trail system has been named in honor of John ’59 and Rosemary Munter of Middle Grove, N.Y., and their family. John Munter spent countless hours working on the trails with equipment loaned by his family business, Munter Enterprises. In all, 22 other North Country businesses and organizations and Clarkson alumni contributed to the effort.

The Munter Trails provide the campus and local community with spectacular views of Fall Island and convenient access to the Raquette River, while enhancing an overall sense of connection with the river.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
