Located in the northernmost corner of Vermont’s Taconic Mountains, High Pond Natural Area is a haven for wildlife like large-ranging mammals and birds. It also supports a number of plant communities that reflect both boreal and more southern affinities.
What TNC is Doing
High Pond natural area is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy in Vermont. The natural area was originally established through the generosity of the late W. Douglas Burden, a conservationist and explorer who lived in Charlotte, Vermont.
With the help of a Vermont Youth Conservation Corps team, TNC recently made an addition to the one-mile visitor’s trail to provide access to the north side of High Pond.
