Lamoille river kayak expedition, September 7, 2019

Rachel and Renaud kayaked a section of the Lamoille to scope out environmental concerns and trash. There is considerable erosion next to Highway 16 but no trash. So there is no need for a river clean-up. We should do another event when the water level of the river is higher.



The second edition of Wetland, Woodland, Wildland, by Elizabeth H. Thompson, Eric R. Sorenson and Robert J. Zaino  was recently published.

More information about this book, and its authors, is available on the website of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources’ Fish and Wildlife Department.
