Conservation Vermont has researched and reviewed three sites in Vermont that are in need of conservation and protection. These areas were selected for the educational opportunities they provide, the ecosystem services that we can benefit from and a diverse, healthy and unique ecosystem that exists there.
One indicator of an ecosystem’s health is the diversity of organisms that live there. This biodiversity creates an environment that is strong and can withstand disturbances. In our increasingly changing global climate, disturbance is becoming commonplace and we need our ecosystems to function under these new conditions.
