Grand Opening - New Groton Nature Center

As we celebrate the opening season of state parks across Vermont, we have another wonderful opening to celebrate this spring....the Groton Nature Center will open to the public on Sunday, June 11th!

Vermont Parks Forever, in partnership with ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain and Vermont State Parks, has restored the 40-year old Groton Nature Center to create the state’s first museum-quality nature center with free access for all.

Located in the 27,000-acre Groton State Forest and surrounded by seven state parks, the Groton Nature Center has been completely modernized and reimagined. Park visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of wildlife, land use, and conservation through themed, tactile, and interactive exhibits. We invite you to take a look at the photos below and to see the center in person on June 11th as we gather to cut the ribbon. Ribbon cutting will take place at 11:30 AM

Looking forward to celebrating with you,

P.S. – If you can’t join us on June 11th, we hope you’ll visit the Groton Nature Center this summer. The center will be open throughout the park season.
