Who We Are
We are Burlington Wildways first perennial interns seeking to find creative and holistic ways to manage non native invasive species! We are constantly searching for ways to connect several spheres of life such as community, food insecurity, and land stewardship together to combat the growing issue regarding these plants.
What is Burlington Wildways?
Burlington Wildways is a nonprofit collaboration between different conservation organizations that aim to protect and connect natural areas in Burlington. Together they aim to create a trail system through Burlington's wild areas and to collectively manage the land. The coalition is made up of Burlington Parks, Recreation and Waterfront, the Winooski Valley Park District, Rock Point, the Burlington Conservation Board, City Council, and the Intervale Center.
