About VPF

Vermont Parks Forever proudly continues Vermont’s tradition of support for conservation, recreation, public health, and natural beauty.

Vermont Parks Forever was founded in 2013 to enhance and protect the Vermont State Parks through charitable and private support. To achieve these goals, we collaborate with Vermont residents, parks visitors, and state government to improve our parks for the benefits of residents and visitors alike. Our work proudly continues Vermont’s tradition of support for conservation, recreation, public health, and natural beauty.
