WHO WE ARE
Vermont Parks Forever (VPF), the foundation for Vermont State Parks, works to enhance and preserve the parks through the charitable support of generous individuals, foundations, and businesses. VPF provides innovative education opportunities in the parks, increases park access for underserved communities, and inspires stewardship of Vermont’s natural places.
WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR HELP
Education - VPF is working with Vermont State Parks and ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, to redesign and restore six nature centers to enhance educational opportunities in our Vermont parks.
Park Access - Each year, VPF provides park access to hundreds of Vermonters, including foster families, students, and those with limited mobility, who otherwise would not have the chance to experience all Vermont’s state parks have to offer. New in 2020, we helped get frontline workers and mental health clients into the parks! In 2019 our donors' support launched over 200 adaptive kayaking trips in the parks for those with limited mobility, funded 150 park passes for foster families, and enabled over 100 youth field trips!
Stewardship - Thanks to donor generosity, VPF offers a
funded park internship to a Vermont teen each summer that instills confidence, a robust work ethic, and a lifelong commitment to the environment.
