The upper Connecticut River has always been considered a treasured gem in the Northeast Kingdom. And thanks to a partnership reached in 2012 between the Vermont Land Trust, the Nature Conservancy and Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, 849 acres along a 6 mile stretch of the river in the towns of Canaan and Lemmington, are now protected from future development. The Johnson Farm Wildlife Management Area is only the third WMA on the banks of the Connecticut River along its 200 mile Vermont border.

Black Bears
Body: 

Vermont’s black bear population is thriving. In fact the population is estimated to over 6,000 bears in the Green Mountain state. The growing bear population is no accident. For years the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department have been staunch protectors of critical bear habitat. However in recent years some of this habitat is being threatened. To better understand how ridgeline development impacts the black bear population a long-term study has begun on the site of a future wind project in southern Vermont.
