Learn how to use a compass and read a topo map. Figure out what to do if you get lost in the woods. Know what to pack for a day hike and how to build a safe campfire. Learn these and other skills at Merck Forest & Farmland Center.
Merck Forest and Farmland Center is a non-profit educational organization located in the Taconic Mountains of southwestern Vermont. The Center’s mission is to inspire curiosity, love and responsibility for our natural and working lands. How to find us: Merck Forest and Farmland Center is located between Rupert and Dorset, at the top of the very large hill on Route 315 (Rupert Mountain Road). Please do not rely solely on your GPS: once you reach the top of the big hill on 315, turn into Merck Forest’s Driveway. If you start going downhill, you’ve missed us!
