Northeast Kingdom to Western Maine

Project description (English)

Characterized by extensive forests, rugged mountains and remote lakes, the Northeast Kingdom, Northern New Hampshire to Western Maine linkage area reaches from the northeast corner of Vermont and across much of northern New Hampshire to connect with Mount Megantic in southern Quebec and east to the forests of Maine and Moosehead Lake. While largely permeable for wildlife, the fertile river valleys of the region with a pattern of intensive agricultural use and scattered communities, present the biggest challenge to maintaining connectivity for wildlife.
