Audubon Pride Hikes: Butternut Hill Natural Area

  • 12 Jun 2022
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

LGBTQIA++ hikers (and birders) are gathering in North Hero along the shores of Lake Champlain. The mile long trail at Butternut Hill winds through floodplain forests, cedar pine forest and cobble shorelines while offering a great southerly view of Lake Champlain. There is a beautiful walk out to a point of land overlooking the water and two nice shale beach that someday could support nesting soft-shell turtles.

In celebration of Pride Month Audubon will be giving away Let's Go Birding Together swag at June's Pride Hike. Click here to see the 2022 collection. Audubon’s earnings from the Let’s Go Birding Together retail collection support Audubon’s own internal affinity groups who support and champion people of color, people with disabilities, and people who identify as women or LGBTQIA++, all of whom are committed to the values of equity, diversity, inclusion & belonging.

All ages, allies, and families welcome! Youth under 18 years should be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Due to the delicate components of this natural area there are no dogs allowed. 

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.
