Vermont River Conservancy is assisting Duxury Land Trust to conserve a property that will add 68-acres to Vermont’s beloved Camels Hump State Park. The project will protect 2,200 feet of cold water brook trout habitat along Ridley Brook and 2,500 feet of riverfront habitat along the Winooski River. The property includes a historic mill site as well as ideal habitat for bobcat, white-tailed deer, black bear, and interior forest bird species such as the black-throated blue warbler.

VRC’s Conservation Manager & Site Steward, Remy Crettol, had the pleasure of documenting this winter wonderland after a deep March snowfall! Join him on a photographic journey of the site! Click any image below to scroll through.
