One of the most frequently visited UVM natural areas, Centennial Woods contains 65 acres of mature conifer stands, mixed hardwoods, fields, streams, and wetlands. Within the city limits of Burlington and adjacent to the UVM campus, this area serves as an excellent natural laboratory to study the region's plants, animals, and natural processes, as well as cultural history. An unblazed trail system wanders through Centennial Woods, offering visitors samples of the natural communities and landscape features thriving here. Students in Environmental Studies, Botany, Zoology, Forestry, Recreation Management, and Education use this area extensively for academic study.
