VINS Canopy Walk

“On Thursday, November 8, 2018, the Vermont and New Hampshire Sections of ASCE met at Hotel Coolidge for a joint dinner meeting to discuss the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) Forest Canopy Walk. With nearly 50 in attendance, Tom Weller, lead project architect of Weller & Michal Architects, and Chris Collier of VINS, presented on the inspiration and background of the VINS Forest Canopy Walk in Hartland, Vermont.” “The 300-foot-long canopy walk, which will begin behind the raptor houses, will be at an approximate elevation of 40 feet, give or take. It will lead visitors through a classic New England mix of hard-and softwood trees, and would offer views of the Ottauquechee River and Dewey’s Pond.” (
