Sustainability Guided Quest
Location: Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, 54 Elm St, Woodstock, VT
Park in the Billings Farm & Museum parking lot. Use the crosswalk at Route 12 to access the National Park. Meet at on the stone patio outside the front of the Visitors Center
As the only park in the National Park System focused on telling the story of conservation history, Marsh- Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is working hard to ensure that all aspects of its current operations are contributing to a healthier and more sustainable Park. The Sustainability Quest will lead you on a personal tour of the highlights of the Park’s sustainability program, starting at the Forest Center and heading out onto nearby trails. As you walk, rhyming clues will guide you across the landscape and toward a hidden treasure box. In the treasure box you will find a logbook to sign your name, where you are from, the date and record any thoughts you would like to share (and maybe even a sketch or a little poem!). You will also be able to collect an impression of the hand-carved rubber stamp when you complete the Quest.
“What we have here is a very early experiment in sustainability. It was not just about the renewal of resources but the renewal of the human spirit.” Rolf Diamant, Superintendent 1998-2011
