The Nulhegan Basin is well known as a remote landscape with an abundance of wildlife, including many rare-to-Vermont boreal species of birds, such as spruce grouse, black-backed woodpecker, and gray jays. We’ll cross in an out of the Nulhegan Basin Division of the Silvio O.Conte National Wildlife Refuge as we explore, beginning with a visit to the Refuge Visitor Station where we will get our bearings for the day. Check out the carnivorous pitcher plants and other unique bog species while exploring the boardwalks of Mollie Beattie and Moose Bog, and then enjoy a beginner-friendly paddle via canoe on the placid waters of Lewis Pond, deep in the Nulhegan. Bring a bag lunch and warm layers. Canoes, paddles, pfds and transportation included in fee. Please register by April 23.
