VLT ecologist Allaire Diamond works closely on our wetland restoration projects. We asked her about Vermont’s wetlands and why they matter.
Over a mile of land along the White River in Bethel has been protected for water quality, the Vermont Land Trust announced today. Supported by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, this is the latest project in a statewide effort to protect Vermont’s high priority rivers and to improve water quality.
As part of our expanding focus on land restoration, we have been taking on more tree plantings in these river buffer areas. The COVID pandemic has meant we’ve needed to scale back this year, but we’ve managed some successes!
