Twenty years ago hundreds of community scientists joined us for the first Vermont Butterfly Atlas, heralding a new era for their conservation. Now with your help, we have the rare opportunity to understand long-term trends in butterfly populations across the state and help conserve them.Join the Atlas
Over 350 wild bee species call Vermont home, but 55 of those species urgently need conservation action. A new report from the Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE), in collaboration with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department (VFWD), provides the first comprehensive assessment of Vermont’s bees.
