Naturalist Journeys 2024

This year's Naturalist Journeys series focuses on climate change — but not in the ways you might expect. From beavers to sheep, forestry to fires, and music to mental health, we'll explore unconventional approaches to safeguarding our planet, our landscapes, and ourselves in this climate crisis. The series runs January through March, with a mix of virtual and in-person presentations. Keep an eye out for the full schedule here soon.

* Face the Rivers at Montpelier High School is a collaboration of MHS, North Branch Nature Center, and Vermont River Conservancy. A class unlike any other, this semester prepares students to become leading stewards of Montpelier's waterways. Students explore aquatic life, investigate flooding, examine erosion, and follow the water through our natural, cultural, and social landscapes. As their final assignment, students were tasked to create video proposals addressing solutions to chosen watershed threats. Watch more of their videos here
