Hub Vogelmann Dies
Co-Founder of the Vermont Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, Hub Vogelmann has passed away, but his legacy lives on
This weekend, we lost a force of nature in Vermont; a man whose strength of will, focus, and passion for the outdoors helped to protect the very landscape we see every day. Hubert W. "Hub" Vogelmann was the driver behind The Nature Conservancy’s Vermont Chapter, and of its pre-1979 land conservation work. He founded the Field Naturalist program at the University of Vermont, through which he taught his belief that a field naturalist with an integrated view of the world and the ability to convey that to the common man can do more than a ream of scientific reports alone could ever do.
