Nature Based Programming

The mission of Petra Cliffs’ Nature Education Program is to encourage a greater understanding and appreciation for our local recreation areas. When we spend time in nature, it can be easy to take the rocks we climb and trees we admire for granted. However, these natural playgrounds are under threat from climate change, development, and overuse. This program aims to educate our community about the local history, and the ecology of the fragile environment here in Vermont. Join Staff Naturalist, GeneO D., for our multi-season nature walks to learn more about how we can all become better stewards of the outdoors.
