Thursday, April 1 at 12 p.m.—VIRTUAL— The Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) invites the public to join the next Clean Water Series talk on Thursday, April 1 from 12-1 p.m. The talk will highlight wetland conservation and is part of a monthly virtual series featuring efforts to protect and restore water quality in Vermont.
At the event, David Sausville, a biologist with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Dept., will discuss a new wetland restoration program. The goal of the program is to improve water quality while providing habitat for wildlife and public land for recreation.
“While we can’t add any more land area to Vermont, we can protect the land we currently have,” said Sausville. “By protecting it today, we’ll be able to manage it in a way that provides long-term benefits for wildlife, their habitats and ultimately humans.”
