The Northeast Kingdom is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, filled with lush forest lands, mountain bogs and cold water streams. But even though it is one of the most undisturbed regions in Northern New England and relatively undeveloped, it is still subjected to fragmentation from roads, deforestation, and agriculture.

We are working to keep the Transitional Conifer-Hardwood ecosystem, which covers the Northeast Kingdom, functioning properly to support the vast array of wildlife that resides there. We are working to identify priority areas for land conservation within the Northeast Kingdom to begin developing a network of protected properties where we will work to restore riparian areas and upland forests.
