Summary

The future of the southern Vermont area is at risk due to overdevelopment and destruction of natural resources. GMC is committed to preserving and conserving adequate wilderness to insure that the biodiversity, wildlife corridors, clean water, the ability to sequester carbon and the aesthetics of this glorious area remain intact into the future. To that end, the Conservancy is working to raise funds so it can quickly respond to critical land acquisition opportunities.

Challenge

Southeastern Vermont is under threat due to overdevelopment and destruction of natural resources. Because we are losing wilderness acreage and trees, our resilience against climate change and our ability to sequester carbon is decreasing, our biodiversity and our water is threatened and our beautiful natural landscape is being destroyed. Wildlife corridors are being obliterated. It is becoming more and more difficult for people to find places to enjoy and learn in the outdoors.

Solution

This project will provide funds so that GMC can purchase and conserve as many of the remaining large parcels of wilderness in southern VT as possible, keeping intact our wildlife corridors from the CT River to the Green MT National Forest, keeping our waters clean and clear, protecting our valued biodiversity, allowing our trees to age and sequester more and more carbon, increasing our resilience to climate change, and protecting the natural beauty of the area.

Long-Term Impact

The continued acquisition, conservation and protection of key wilderness areas in Southern Vermont will help assure that the area remains beautiful, attractive to visitors, beloved by locals, good for the economy, an on-going sanctuary for the many species that call this wilderness home, and a travel corridor for species that rely on varying conditions for their survival. Trees that are left to grow unimpeded will sequester more and more carbon, reducing the effects of climate change.
