Experience nature like never before. Visit the new Forest Canopy Walk, fun for people of all ages and levels of ability. This ADA-accessible walk gains elevation without using stairs because it follows the land's natural slop toward the Ottauquechee River. Enjoy a tree house, giant spider web 43 feet above the forest floor, educational interpretation and local artwork.

Live bird programs daily, 17 state-of-the art enclosures with the largest collection of birds in the northeast including bald eagles, golden eagles, hawks, owls and falcons. Hike their interpretive nature trails through 47 acres and enjoy our adventure playscape.

Shop the Nature Store and find many unusual gifts for that special someone.
