North Branch Nature Center
We're a small preserve with a big heart at a gentle bend in the North Branch of the Winooski River.
For more than a decade North Branch Nature Center has put people in touch with the sights, sounds and sensations of the wild within our capital.
North Branch is firefly light sparkling in a child's eye. It is a lecture hall where we learn the secrets of warblers and willows and weather. And it is a quiet place to walk or ski, swim or sit, or simply to do nothing beside the river.
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
Forest Preschool is an outdoor, exploratory, play-based program that empowers children ages 3.5 - 6 to be active in their own learning process, while providing them the means to connect to one another and the natural world in a caring way. For more info, please visit the forest preschool page. Scholarships may be available.
