October at the Intervale Center


Sustaining farms, land, and people since 1988

Fall in the Intervale is arguably the most pleasant time of year. The sunny and cool days lend themselves to incredible walks on our (new and improved!) trails and offer comfortable weather for farmers and our Conservation Nursery staff to accomplish bountiful fall harvests. In fact, our Nursery will harvest 8,000 trees this fall, planting them throughout Vermont to restore over 30 acres of forest along rivers and streams. Learn more about these trees and all that they will do in Vermont here!

New and Improved: Trails in the Intervale

The Intervale Center’s Land Stewardship team has been busy improving our trails in the Intervale. Small and large changes are certain to increase the enjoyment of your walk, run, bike or ski!

Come down for a walk and see what we’ve been doing! You’ll notice new Intervale Center blazes for better wayfinding and a brand new Roadside Trail to help walkers spend more time in nature and less time on our busy road. Two of three sections are complete, one starting behind the brick farmhouse and another which parallels the road and ends at the Picnic Grove and Tommy Thompson Gardens. Soon this roadside trail will connect in the middle and become a contiguous trail of approximately one-third of a mile.

Read on at our blog to learn more about trail improvements and changes!
