The Association of Vermont Conservation Commissions’ annual Conservation Summit will be on Saturday, Sept. 23, at Common Ground Center in Starksboro, VT. This year’s theme is “Conservation into the Future” and the all-day conference will feature presentations, trainings, and networking essential to Vermont’s conservation community. The event doubles as the annual meeting for AVCC and is open to the public – we welcome current conservation commissioners, community volunteers, and those interested in becoming more involved in conservation work within their community. Our keynote speaker will be Allan Thompson, Northern Stewards Consulting and Waterbury Conservation Commission, who will speak about work focused on the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Crossing and the innovative partnerships, scientific inquiry, and implementation efforts to maintain wildlife connectivity. Other sessions include Economics of Conservation, Wetlands of VT, a panel on youth engagement & recruitment, Climate Smart Conservation, Vermont Conservation Design, and the Agency of Natural Resources’ NR2 Caring for Natural Resources Taking Action in Your Community training.
