Thanks to generous contributions from park enthusiasts in 2016, Vermont Parks Forever helped make our amazing state parks even better by:

  • Purchasing season passes for foster families so that they could enjoy the wonders of our parks
  • Supporting the effort to rebuild the fire-damaged Stone Hut at Mt. Mansfield in Stowe
  • Establishing a youth scholarship to support an annual summer internship at Mt. Philo State Park  
  • Helping manage legacy land gifts to create Muckross State Park in Springfield and Taconic Mountains Ramble State Park in Hubbardton, Vermont’s 53rd and 54th state parks

    We have even more excitement planned in 2017 – stay tuned!

Vermont Parks Forever Helps 100 Foster Families Visit State Parks

For the second year in a row, Vermont Parks Forever has raised $3,000 to purchase state park passes for 100 Vermont foster families. The passes allow families with children and youth in foster care to experience all that Vermont State Parks have to offer and have fun spending time together in nature!

Thank you Lisa Cashdan and Peter Stein, Charles P. Ferro Foundation, The Alchemist, and Vermont Parks Forever board and staff members for making this gift of park passes possible again in 2017.
