Clarkson University’s new Munter Trails along the Raquette River will be dedicated Saturday, Oct. 20.

POTSDAM -- Clarkson University is about to dedicate the new Munter Trails along the Raquette River that are part of the university’s master plan aimed at better utilizing the river as a campus resource.

The 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.

The dedication is at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20 near the canoe house on campus off Clarkson Avenue. All are welcome.

Clarkson President Tony Collins will lead the ceremony with Potsdam Mayor Steve Yurgartis participating. Light refreshments will be available.

The Munter Trails are part of Clarkson’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 many hours working on the trails with equipment lent by his family business, Munter Enterprises. In all, 22 other North Country businesses and organizations and Clarkson alumni contributed to the effort.
