Mount Philo State Park: Climate Change and Rare Plants


The Park’s management plan is being revised and will include climate change considerations.

Mount Philo State Park is located atop Mt. Philo and overlooks the Lake Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The 168-acre park is Vermont’s oldest State Park and is a popular destination for hiking, birding, and other outdoor activities. Staff from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources are currently working to update the Park’s management plan, which includes a large amount of public input because of the park’s popularity.
