Where are we going today?

Come and view life-size, accurate woodcarvings of birds...and a few plants and mammals as well.
The woodcarvings depict Vermont's nesting species in their natural habitats as well as North America's endangered and extinct species.

Learn about birds, their habitats and environments. Observe woodcarvers at work, and find out more about carving tools and techniques. See other wildlife art on exhibit, and contribute your own in our annual art contest. Watch live birds through our viewing windows, and find out what foods and feeders work well for different species. Pick up a souvenir or snack in our gift shop. Become a member, and get discounts and our newsletter. Hike our trails, and extend your visit to the the green Mountain Audubon center nearby. Attend a program (we have demonstrations, children's activities, bird walks, and much more).

Individuals, families, tour groups, campers, and school groups are all welcome. Visit our website or call to find out what special programs are coming up.

We look forward to seeing you!
