Pride Hikes: Fall at Shelburne Farms

November 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Pride Hikes: Fall at Shelburne Farms
Co-hosted by Audubon Vermont, Pride Center of Vermont, and Shelburne Farms

Saturday, November 11, 2023
1:00pm – 3:00pm Eastern
Shelburne, Vermont

We will meet in the parking lot at the Farm Barn. Please drive through the main entry gate at the farm, then follow the signs to the Farm Barn. Take the first left turn, then a gentle right to access the parking lot behind/above the farm.

Follow Shelburne Farms’ trails along cow pasture, through the sugarbush, and up hills with views of Lake Champlain and the Champlain Valley. Shelburne Farms campus is a 1,400-acre working farm located on the unceded, traditional, and contemporary homelands of the Winooskik band of the Abenaki. Over 10 miles of walking trails are an integral part of connecting people to the land and fostering a sense of place, which are both central to their educational mission.

All ages, allies, and families welcome! Youth under 18 years should be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Sorry, no dogs this time around.

Pride Hikes are a collaboration between Audubon Vermont and the Pride Center of 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 LGBTQIA2S+ community members.

Trail/accessibility information: Our walk will be at an easy pace and will cover less than 3 miles. We are very flexible about the trails we choose based upon the needs of the group. Some trails are flat and wide and on a base of crushed gravel, grass or wood chips, while others are a bit more steep and uneven. Elevation gain is minimal. There are benches and sit spots available along the trail system. In November, the trail conditions are based on the weather and either covered in fallen leaves or snow. As we get closer to the event, Audubon will contact participants about appropriate footwear and other suggested gear.

Indoor, gender inclusive restrooms are available at the Farm Barn near the Children’s Farmyard (our meet-up spot). Portolets are available at the Farm Store parking lot.

If you require accommodations or have questions about accessibility, please contact Audubon Vermont at sarah.hooghuis@audubon.org
