North Branch Nature Center
We're a small preserve with a big heart at a gentle bend in the North Branch of the Winooski River.
For more than a decade North Branch Nature Center has put people in touch with the sights, sounds and sensations of the wild within our capital.
North Branch is firefly light sparkling in a child's eye. It is a lecture hall where we learn the secrets of warblers and willows and weather. And it is a quiet place to walk or ski, swim or sit, or simply to do nothing beside the river.
Level 1: July 13-17
Level 2: July 27-31
Join us in learning specific daily core routines and field technical skills to apply as the structure for your own outdoor classroom. We will experience NGSS and Common Core standardized lessons and written reflection on these lessons. The week will be spent entirely outdoors on the beautiful landscape at North Branch Nature Center! Learn more.
