Vermont is famous for its beautiful natural surroundings and Vermont State Parks provides easy access to the flora and fauna of our state.
You can hike through old growth forest at Gifford Woods, or through a peat bog at Lake Carmi. You are likely to see loons on a visit to Green River Reservoir or a moose at Stillwater. Mount Philo State Park is a great place to observe the annual fall hawk migration and Burton Island is a great place to watch Least Terns dive for supper.
There is a wide variety of habitat and wildlife in the parks, from the sandy dunes of Alburgh Dunes State Park, to the alpine zone on Mt. Mansfield. You can explore woodlands and meadows, lakes and mountain streams, marshes, mountaintops, islands and cliffs, all in Vermont State Parks.
