How are Vermont's Wetlands Doing and How Can I Support Them?

  • Thursday, May 26th, 2022, 12:00-12:45 pm.
  • Laura Lapierre, DEC Wetlands Program Manager
  • Given that over 4% of Vermont is wetland, there is a good chance that there is one or more in your community. Wetlands provide many benefits to water health and ecosystem function by improving flood resiliency, providing habitat, slowing and filtering water, and maintaining healthy shorelines. Improving your knowledge about local wetlands can help you better understand what actions to take to maintain and enhance wetland functions and benefits. This lecture will focus on wetland losses and gains in Vermont, measures in place to protect wetlands, and ways the public can help support wetlands.
