Virtual Nature Walks


Our naturalists bring you to popular Central Vermont locations to explore the natural world as we transition into spring. We'll be choosing locations that are easy to access, have wide trails or dirt roads, and are popular (but not too popular) places for our community members to get some fresh air and exercise. We hope you'll get out and see if you can find these features and creatures yourselves!

The North Branch of the Winooski River is teeming with life! We placed three game cameras at locations around the Nature Center for January-March 2020, and here's what we found!


How to Timberdoodle
