WALK IN THE WOODS

Vermont Woodlands Association and the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation are inviting you to take a monthly excursion into Vermont’s forests, county by county. The monthly walks in the woods will be led by county foresters, consulting foresters, and natural resource professionals to showcase the wonders and enjoyment of Vermont’s lush forests. Participants are encouraged to wear sturdy walking shoes or boots.

Be sure to check our full calendar at a glance to view ALL EVENTS being offered.
