Restoring our relationships with nature, ourselves, and each other




Upcoming Adult Programs

Lynx Tracking Expedition

Join Vermont Wilderness School for a long weekend on the trail of one of the most elusive carnivores of the Northeast. The Canada Lynx is built for deep snows, long winters, and big wilderness – all found in the vast lands of Northern Maine. We will spend the weekend together tracking, trailing, learning winter ecology, and building connection with the grey ghost of the North!
