Protect Critical Habitats.

We protect and improve important habitats, such as nesting sites for bald eagles, loons, peregrine falcons and spiny softshell turtles with your gift.

Assist Conservation Planning.

We provide up-to-date information about rare species and significant natural communities to help local conservation and planning efforts.

Spotlight Vermont's Rare Wildlife.
