Celebrating 50 years of connecting people to nature.
Although we engage people of all ages, the Green Mountain Audubon Center is largerly focused on nurturing children. Here, we inspire appreciation, build understanding and foster a stewardship ethic that supports a lifetime of personal well-being and conservation action. These legacies are then passed down to the next generation. Children who grew up exploring the Audubon Center's 250-acres of forests, fields and wetlands along the Huntington River in the 1970s and 80s now bring their own children to summer camps, to help with a volunteer project and to enjoy the same trails and swimming holes of their youth.
The diversity of natural communities provides breeding and wintering habitat for over 100 species of birds including the Hermit Thrush, Blackburnian Warbler, Red-eyed Vireo, and Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Wetlands offer critical breeding areas for amphibians such as Spotted Salamanders and Wood Frogs as well as year round residence for beaver. During the spring, the forest floor bursts forth in early wildflower color, while in the fall, the forest canopy puts on its own showing of brilliant foliage.

Throughout the year there are a number of seasonal areas of interest to visit. As winter fades into spring, stop by the sugarhouse to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of maple sugaring time. During the summer months, the butterfly garden, located next to the Barn, may provide a glimpse of native butterfly species or even a hummingbird! Lookout Rock offers spectacular views of the Green Mountains to the east at any time of the year.
