UVM Natural Areas

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 one thousand 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.
