—Rachel Carson

BEEC is located on a picturesque old farm in Brattleboro, Vermont.  Today the former farm buildings shelter campers, school groups and provide office space to our staff. The pastures and forests offer natural beauty to those who walk our trails, and outdoor learning opportunities for those who attend BEEC programs.  The sweeping view from the summit of Heifer Hill is not to be missed.

Our programs include:

BEEC has 2 miles of trails that are open for walking from dawn until dusk.
