Help Shape BurlingtonGreen’s Future Focus

A greener future needs a plan, a dedicated focus, leadership, and of course, contributions from everyone. The development of our next 5-year strategic plan is underway and we are inviting YOU, the Burlington community to share your valued input to help shape our future focus.



New community programming coming soon

We’re excited to expand our nature-focused programming during the year ahead to include more presentations and hands-on activities for all ages at locations easily accessible to older adults. Stay tuned for details.
