Vermont State Parks Welcome Old Friends As New Park Managers at Townshend

Tiff and Chris by the park office 
If you ever visited Townshend State Park in recent years, you probably remember rangers Pat and Gary, who were famous for their Saturday night everyone-welcome guitar jam sessions, among other things. When they retired at the end of last year, they left some pretty big shoes to fill. Still, the universe has a way of working things out, and Townshend has a new pair of managers who some visitors may recognize.

This year, we are pleased to welcome Chris and Tiff, who have balanced working for Vermont State Parks while traveling the world for over 8 years. They have managed Elmore, Waterbury Center, Seyon Lodge and now after a year-long sabbatical throughout Southeast Asia, they have landed at Townshend. We are so pleased to have Tiff and Chris back with us for another great season in Vermont State Parks!

Townshend is known as a quiet and rustic park in southern VT, with a CCC-built stone shelter and old-fashioned tent platforms. The stone park office was also CCC built, with the stone quarried in the surrounding area. The park is also a good choice for hikers: A 3.4 moderate, round trip hike through Townshend State Forest and ascends Bald Mountain, through trees such as sugar maple, birch, red oak, and hemlock.

Stop by Townshend to say hello and welcome, and read more about Chris and Tiff’s adventures on their blog:
