VINS presents forest ecology walk to off-the-grid property in Washington

Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m.—QUECHEE—In celebration of the 40th birthday of the Vermont Land Trust, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science is pleased to offer a forest ecology walk Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at VINS’ Old Pepper Place Nature Reserve in Washington, Vt. The nature reserve is a stunning, biologically diverse parcel of land set on 327 acres.

The walk will be led by Jon Bouton, a retired Windsor County forester and current VINS board of trustees member; and by Marcus Bradley, a forester working for Redstart Natural Resource Management. The program is presented in partnership with the Vermont Land Trust and is free and open to the public.
