Vermont Parks Forever is partnering with Outdoor Gear Exchange to raise funds for our Park Access Program!

OGE’s goal from day one has been to encourage folks to get outside — regardless of their experience. We’re grateful for their continued support of Vermont’s state parks and their commitment to increasing access to the outdoors for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and other historically excluded communities.

Visit OGE in store or online for a chance to win over $1200 of gear from The North Face, Mountain Hardware, Oboz, and Mountainsmith while supporting Vermont Park Forever’s efforts to make our state parks for everyone!

There is so much to treasure about Vermont’s state parks.

Vermont Parks Forever is continuing a tradition of private-public partnership to make our amazing state parks even better by enhancing and protecting these gems. We are raising funds and investing in innovative projects that make our parks more accessible and connect our visitors to the natural world in a deep, sustained way. Improving our parks is an important first step in restoring the connection to nature, making our children healthier, and creating a new generation of environmentalists to defend our natural places. We hope you’ll help us meet the challenge.

Thanks to generous contributions from park enthusiasts since 2013, Vermont Parks Forever has helped make our amazing state parks even better by:

  • Providing free park access for foster families, front line workers, undeserved communities, and those with limited mobility, who otherwise would not have the chance to experience all Vermont’s state parks have to offer through our Park Access Fund  
  • Continuing a youth scholarship to support an annual summer internship at Mt. Philo State Park
  • Planning the revitalization of nature centers in six of our state parks, beginning in Groton
  • Helping manage legacy land gifts that opened two new state parks: Muckross State Park in Springfield in 2016 and Taconic Mountains Ramble State Park in Hubbardton in 2017.
