The September 29th Summit is a day-long educational and networking event for community volunteers engaged in planning and caring for natural resources. Join us as we share experiences and ideas on the many issues communities face in managing natural resource assets, from town forests to town plans!This year’s theme is “Caring for Vermont’s Waters – What We Can Do!!” and we’ll be exploring what CCs and local conservationists can do to protect these valuable resources. This theme is woven through all the sessions.
