The Big Picture
Think of all we value in the landscapes that enfold us here in southwestern Vermont:
Our streams, rivers and lakes - the clean waters they transport,
the opportunities for recreation they provide, the organisms
(trout! loons!) that live in them.
The forests that cloak our Green Mountains and Taconics - the
natural areas and wildlife habitats they represent, the clean
air and dark skies they protect, the timber and other resources
Our working farms - the fresh and healthy products of all kinds
they make available to us, the agricultural economy they
sustain, the scenic vistas they preserve.
The Bennington County Conservation District works to conserve them
all, for all of us.
IN THE NEWS
Join our Book Club
Members of the Bennington County Sustainable Forest Consortium steering committee invite you to join our "book club." Every other month, one of us will pull from a hat the title of an article or book suggested by a member of the group. We'll all read that item and discuss it at the next meeting. We invite you to read what we're reading, and to comment via an e-mail or on the Bennington County Conservation District Facebook page.
The current reading is Stone Walls and Cellar Holes.
