This is a family-friendly festival with an emphasis on the wildlife and natural resources of Vermont.

The festival will feature live animals, nature-focused walks, kids’ activities, presentations, and demonstrations by environmental and nature organizations, and more -- all focused on getting outdoors and enjoying nature.

“The Herricks Cove Wildlife Festival gives participants a chance to learn about our native wildlife and the importance of conserving their habitats so future generations can appreciate them as well,” said MaryBeth Adler, a state wildlife biologist with Vermont Fish and Wildlife.  

Activities are scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The suggested donation is $2.00 for an individual and $5.00 for a family.  Pets are not allowed. 

Herricks Cove is located just off Route 5, less than three miles north of Bellows Falls.
