Birds of Interest

An article about Carse Wetlands by the Green Mountain Audubon Society suggests birds of interest for each section of the trails at the wetlands.

About this Location

The Carse Wetlands Natural Area is 225 acres in size and is located in Hinesburg adjacent to and east of Baldwin Road. The property is a mix of open agricultural fields, forests, and wetlands including a basin of open water. The wetlands and open water dominate the central portion of the property isolating the eastern side of the property from the more accessible western portion. Direct access to the western portion of the property is along Baldwin Road where there is approximately 500 feet of frontage at two separate locations along the road. The eastern side of the property is effectively landlocked and contains a collection of significant ecological features including unusual upland and wetland natural communities and a number of rare plants. A Vermont Electric Company (VELCO) high-tension power line runs through the northwest portion of the property. A trail system has recently been developed for the natural area with a short boardwalk leading out into the core wetland.

There is no designated parking lot for Carse Wetlands. Park along the shoulder of Baldwin Road near the trailhead.
