Nature Centers in Vermont State Parks

photo of nature centerJamaica State Park:  Stop by the picnic shelter and visit the nature center to discover the mysteries of the West River Railroad and history of the park, as well as secrets of the river and forest life in this special place along the West River. 

Coolidge State Park: Built by a park ranger and a National Civilian Community Corps crew, this rustic nature center has been funded by donations from people who really care about Coolidge State Park.  Although it is a work in progress and displays are not in place yet, you can visit and take a close look at a hand built log cabin.  Sit on the porch and take a step back in time.

Groton Forest:  The heart of Groton State Forest is the nature center, situated in the center of popular hiking trails and the launching off point for Peacham Bog exploration, is home to natural and cultural history displays for you and your family to explore.  On an inclimate day, sit back and peruse a field guide or play a nature game with fellow campers.  Plan your hikes and meet your friends from other areas of the park at this central location.  Enjoy a program or activity or just kick back on the porch and watch the tamarack trees blowing in the breeze. 

Button Bay State Park:  If you would like to get a close look at some interesting button bay buttons, or you want to learn more about the geology or flora and fauna of the area, visit the nature center at Button Bay State Park.  Peruse the displays and explore the mysteries of the geologic features of this unique place. 

Lake Carmi State Park:  Take a break from the beach and learn about the natural and cultural history of Lake Carmi State Park in the nature center.  Explore the interactive displays while you learn interesting facts about the place you are visiting.
