Welcome to the the Resiliency vermont investment proposal website! Here you will find descriptions of three sites that should be protected because they are valuable educational and biodiversity resources. These sites are the Jericho research forest, Potash brook watershed and Green mountain Audubon center. These sites all offer opportunities for students to study Vermont’s natural resources and in protecting the biodiversity the importance of that quality of environment can be seen. If an ecosystem has a large diversity of species, it will be more likely to heal stronger when disturbed. The more diversity will also provide more benefits for other species. Picture a street market. If there is only one vendor you can only get one product, but if there are multiple vendors and their families set up selling what they have you will be able to get much more when you go to that street. The same idea works with species diversity in an ecosystem and this will be described for the three locations in this website.
