Reading Rivers

VNRC Releases New Rivers Publication

“Reading Vermont’s Rivers,” VNRC’s newest publication, is hot off the presses.

This 16-page, large format compilation features articles written by river scientists, state officials, planners, and road engineers to help laypeople understand the management of rivers. River corridors, buffers, headwaters, and different types of flooding areas are all explained in simple terms. The publication is ideal for town boards and commissions, state officials, and Vermonters interested in rivers.

“We have sought to assemble an accessible, informative introduction to how rivers behave and what makes them healthy,” said Kim Greenwood, VNRC’s water program director.

VNRC is grateful for the experts who provided insightful articles, as well as the funding support from the Orchard Foundation, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc, the Lintilhac Foundation, and the Johnson Family Foundation.
