Ecology and Geology of Vermont

“Ecology and Geology of Vermont: the shaping of our landscape,” will be the topic of a slide presentation and discussion at the Woodbury Community Library on Wednesday, August 3 at 7PM.  Eric Hanson, conservation biologist for the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project will be the speaker.  Vermont is at the crossroads of several ecological regions from areas with oaks and black locust trees in the south to boreal forests in the northeast.  Mr. Hanson will explain how various factors including soil and climate have influenced not only what we see on the landscape but how these factors have shaped the human settlement of the region over the past 300 years.

This program is open to all and free to attend.  The Woodbury Community Library is located behind the Woodbury Elementary School at 69 Valley Lake Road in Woodbury, VT.  For more information contact the library at 472-5710 or woodbury@vals.state.vt.us.
