Delaney Woods is home to diverse forest types and wildlife habitats that are open to the public for recreation and exploration. Join us for a kid-centered hike to a vernal pool—a small, seasonal forest wetland that is essential for the reproduction of several of our native frog and salamander species. We’ll look for signs of amphibian life along the way. Dress for hiking through water and mud!

This event is perfect for adventurous kids aged 5-12 and their families, but all are welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult. The rain date for this event is April 22. 

We will hike 0.6 miles uphill (and back) on an old rocky Class 4 road. Expect uneven terrain and mud. Some off-trail forest exploration will be involved. Bring sturdy waterproof footwear (taller boots if you want to explore further into wet areas), water bottle, and a snack. Bring lunch if you’d like to picnic nearby after the event, at the Lakeside Park. 

The Vermont Land Trust welcomes and affirms all regardless of their age, culture, abilities, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
