Pride Hikes: Audubon Vermont
September 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
LGBTQIA++ hikers are returning to the Green Mountain Audubon Center for some birding and to explore the trails and enjoy the views.
We’ll start on the Arboretum Trail, which loops through what was once an old field. Now a healthy young forest, this area hosts a diversity of young-forest birds. From there we’ll head up to Lookout Rock, with stunning views of both Camel’s Hump and Mount Mansfield. The Spear and Hires Trails will lead us back down through hemlock, maple, and oak stands of the forest. Fall migration is already underway, so we might catch sight of unexpected migratory birds.
There will be a post-hike creemee stop in Richmond at Hatchet.

Pride Hikes are a collaboration between Audubon Vermont, the Pride Center of Vermont, and Outright Vermont. Pride Hikes have been happening every month since June of 2018 and go beyond being “welcoming to everyone” to creating a safe, affirming space for LGBTQIA++ community members.
All ages, allies, and families welcome! Youth under 18 years should be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Please wear weather-appropriate clothing, bring a mask (see more COVID details here), snacks, and plenty of water! Please bring anything else you will need to feel comfortable outdoors for a little over an hour or two, such as sturdy walking shoes, insect repellent, and sunscreen.
Dogs are welcome as long as they are leashed.
