From the Director: Update 7/1/20


After consultation with The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen (TNFW) Staff, and medical associates, TNFW has made the decision to not reopen the Trillium House facility the weekend of July 10th as originally planned. Our organization is carefully monitoring the current COVID-19 health crisis, and we will continue to review our abilities to protect our staff, our members, and guests. It is our opinion that to open the Trillium House to the public at this time would be premature.  

We have started our outdoor guided hikes and workshops, however we are limiting the number of participants to allow for social distancing. We are taking the appropriate precautions, including social distancing and face coverings, when required in all programs and activities. Hike participants are being asked to meet our hike leaders at the Trillium House parking lot and drive their own vehicles to the trailheads. We request the hike participants to bring masks with them. Our trail maps can be purchased at the Mountain Inn front desk and at the Blackrock gas station. The map is also available on our website.  

Staff will continue to monitor messages via telephone and email. Our native plant list can be found on our website. Order plants and schedule appointment for pickup at our greenhouse via email to

Also, please check out our website for “The Nine Minute Naturalist” and Peace Out(side) for virtual offerings. Our Facebook and Instagram pages are updated weekly with interesting information and activities.
