Since January 1st, 2018, towns and RPCs are required to identify forest blocks and habitat connectors, as well as plan for development in those places in ways that minimize forest fragmentation. This requirement asks towns to look at the larger patterns of forests and dive into the science of what is known about connectivity in their region at multiple scales. Some of the data involved is immediately actionable, but some of the models warrant caution and additional research. Tune in to hear how VT Fish & Wildlife Department can help your town interpret available data and translate it into actionable planning and policy.
Presenters: Jens Hilke & Andy Wood from Vermont Fish & Wildlife
