Welcome to the University of Vermont
In 1974, the University of Vermont Board of Trustees
established the University of Vermont Natural Areas. By this action, the
Board of Trustees recognized the University's responsibility of leadership
in the identification, protection, and management of important natural
areas on University-owned lands. From over 650 acres along the shoreline
of Shelburne Pond to less than three acres at Redstone Quarry, these natural
areas provide outstanding resources to meet the teaching and research needs
in disciplines that require or can benefit from field experience.
