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. 

Upcoming Program: Winter Tree I.D. at Arms Forest 

Are you interested in learning more about local ecology? Do you struggle to identify trees without their leaves? Then our Winter Tree ID hike could be right for you! Join Petra Cliffs Staff Naturalist, GeneO D. on a walk through the Arms Forest in the New North End of Burlington where you will learn about trees and shrubs of Vermont forests as well as tips and tricks for identifying trees in the winter.
