Burlington Wildways

Burlington Wildways was established by a 2017 Burlington City Council resolution (Res 4.05). Originally called Burlington Open and Natural Lands Conservation & Connection Initiative and renamed in 2018, the organization seeks to increase the effectiveness of conservation collaborations already underway among multiple stakeholders in Burlington—we are working together to successfully protect, connect and make accessible the quarter of the city’s land that is in natural areas.

We are a partnership between Burlington Parks, Recreation and Waterfront, Winooski Valley Park District, Rock Point, Burlington Conservation Board, City Council and Intervale Center.  We have non-profit status with Winooski Valley Park District acting as our fiscal agent.
