More on why invasive plants have a competitive advantage over native plants, where they invade, how they are spread, and why you should care. 

What Posting Means

The Vermont constitution has protected the right to hunt, fish and trap on open, private land since its drafting in 1793.  Posting laws and regulations honor this commitment while also ensuring landowners have the protections they need to control their property.

Natural Heritage Information

Natural Heritage information is objective scientific information, or data, about species and natural communities. It is used for local, state-wide, and regional conservation planning and management, and to monitor and conserve rare, threatened, and endangered species.

EQIP, or Environmental Quality Incentives Program provides information and financial incentives for landowners to manage their land for wildlife.
