Afterschool with Audubon Vermont

Throw off your pack and shake off the day!

Prior to the pandmic, Audubon Vermont offered afterschool programs for years, both here at our Green Mountain Audubon Center and in partnership with afterschool providers in schools and facilities in Chittenden County. From Williston and South Burlington enrichment opportunities, to our continuing partnership with the King Street Center thanks to a grant and generous donor support, we offer children a chance to explore nature around their school, local park, or the Audubon Center at their own pace. 

Afterschool programs are a great way to discover the outdoors, with much less structure than traditional field trips and classes. We believe in child-led exploration and nature immersion. We hope to bring regular programs back to our center in the fall of 2022.
