Little Averill Lake is set in a remote corner of the Northeast Kingdom. With a few camps lining the edges of the 438-acre pond and much of the surrounding land managed for timber, this sandy shoreline natural area inspires an appreciation for the expansiveness of the region. Former Champion Lands flank the eastern edge of the water and the cliffs and talus slopes of Brousseau Mountain loom to the northwest.
Why TNC Selected This Site
Loons, the lake sand beach community, and its adjacent wetland. TNC conserved this land to protect the nesting site for the loons and the lake sand beach community.
What TNC is Doing
TNC volunteers work with the Vermont Center for Ecostudies on a loon-monitoring project.
