Class I Petition Form

Existing Class I Wetlands

Class I wetlands are exceptional or irreplaceable in their contribution to Vermont’s natural heritage.  They provide unmatched environmental functions and values and therefore merit the highest level of protection.  This page provides information about our existing Class I wetlands, what Class I status means, and how to petition for your wetland to receive Class I protections.
