What is squishy, vegetated, and mottled? A wetland, of course! These unique ecological areas protect and improve water quality, provide fish and wildlife habitat, store floodwaters, and maintain surface water flow during dry periods.

Join Jon Groveman and Karina Dailey from the Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC) for a presentation about Vermont’s wetlands. Learn about how these unique natural areas are defined scientifically, how they function, common types seen in Vermont, and how they are protected under Vermont law. In particular, we discuss some of the proposed changes to the Vermont Wetland Rules that are being considered by the Agency of Natural Resources (ANR), and issues related to farming that are currently under debate.
