Conservation Planning

Conservation Planning for the Town of Middlebury
The Middlebury Town Plan calls for the identification of lands important to the community’s long-term sustainability. In this course we will work with the Middlebury Planning Commission to identify priority conservation lands, including wildlife corridors and core habitat areas, recreation lands, scenic view-sheds and other important natural areas worthy of long term conservation. We will explore the legal context of land use planning for conservation in Vermont, how the current Middlebury zoning impacts land use and how other communities have developed conservation plans. Using ARCGIS, we will create our own model to identify and prioritize conservation lands in Middlebury. (GEOG 0120 or GEOG 0320)
