ROCK POINT COMMONS
Rock Point Commons encompasses 130 acres of publicly accessible conserved lands on the shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, VT. Guests from all walks of life are welcome, whether looking for a place to hike, an overnight stay, or a place to gather and learn with friends.
Our mission is to cultivate an inclusive, place-based community for education, spirituality, and environmental stewardship. To this end, we partner with groups and individuals who embody these values and we provide access to land, facilities, and resources at Rock Point.
We welcome you to be a part of this community, and we seek to create a space where all feel welcome to participate in this mission.
Rock Point Commons sits on the unceded and traditional lands of the Abenaki Nation, a tribe of the Wabanaki Confederacy. We honor and acknowledge their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land while also pausing to express our deep sadness for the painful history of harm done to indigenous people and their removal from this land.
We are grateful for the privilege to gather, learn, and hike on Abenaki land and are committed to continuing to care for this 130-acre sanctuary. We also recognize that this land acknowledgment statement is a small gesture, and we will continue to educate ourselves about the history of these lands and people.
