Association of Vermont Conservation Commissions Summit

Event Details

This year’s theme is “Conservation into the future!” and we’ll be exploring the skills, partnerships, science,  and technology that are changing the face of conservation.  This theme is woven through all the sessions and we hope it will challenge our participants and presenters to set a solid course for conservation.

Our Keynote speaker will be Allan Thompson , Northern Stewards Consulting and Waterbury Conservation Commission to talk about conservation work focused on the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Crossing and the innovative partnerships, years of scientific inquiry and multi-pronged implementation effort to maintain connectivity at that location.
