Adirondacks to Greens

Project description (English)

The Green Mountains to Adirondacks linkage area is a “linkage” because of the character of the landscape—it is the most heavily forested part of the valley that separates the Green Mountains from the Adirondacks. North of Orwell, VT, Lake Champlain dramatically broadens, and agricultural land use predominates, while south of Fort Ann, NY, development becomes more intensive, and agriculture becomes much more prevalent. As such, it is crucial that the needs of both wildlife and human communities are met in this area.
