The Association of Vermont Conservation Commissions (AVCC) will hold its Annual Summit, Conservation in the Time of COVID-19, as an online series beginning on September 23. The program will consist of four Zoom sessions and a keynote address by Paul Costello, Executive Director of the Vermont Council on Rural Development (VCRD).
Virtual sessions will explore how conservation commissions have adapted to get work done during the pandemic; the value of town forests in a time of social distancing; perspectives on land access, equity, and conservation; and the impact of agriculture on water quality in Vermont. Each session will take place at noon on Wednesdays through early November, via Zoom.
Keynote speaker Paul Costello will tie together the various themes to explore Resilience and Change: Conservation and Community in a Renewed Vermont on Wednesday, November 11 at 7pm.
