The Green Mountain Audubon Center


Click here to share 50th Anniversary story.

Celebrating 50 years of connecting people to nature.  The Center is celebrating 50 years of serving as a community gateway to the natural world and stewardship action. 

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 255-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.

As Audubon celebrates our rich 50 year history and accomplishments, we are looking to the community to share stories, photos and other memorabilia so we can create a record of the many ways in which the Audubon Center has touched lives of Vermonters over the years.

If you would like to share a story, testimonial, or photo that captures how the Green Mountain Audubon Center has touched your life or the lives of others, please fill out this form for us or mail hard copies to Audubon Vermont.   The more details you share about the photo the better!  We will collect these throughout the year and will create an archive that will be shared publicly this fall.

All sumbissions will become property of Audubon Vermont and will be subject to sharing publicly.  Submissions will not be returned unless otherwise arranged.

Nestled in the foothills of the Green Mountains, the 255-acre Green Mountain Audubon Center offers outstanding opportunities for exploration and discovery of the natural world of Vermont. Five miles of trails wind their way through a variety of natural communities including, northern hardwood forest, hemlock swamp, and the Huntington River.

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.  Download The Green Mountain Audubon Center Bird List here.  For the latest on bird sightings at our Center click here.

Check out what's happening around the Green Mountain Audubon Center through the seasons at our virtual tour and online field notebook. Interested in posting photos or observations? We would love to have visitors contribute to this interactive resource. Email for more information.

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.
