Why did the fish cross the road?

The Nature Conservancy, with funding from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, is assessing whether animals such as fish, turtles and salamanders can move through culverts in Champlain Basin watersheds. Assessments were recently completed for the Lamoille River Basin and work is about to begin in Lewis and Otter Creeks. In the Lamoille Basin, over 60% of culverts do not have good passage for aquatic animals.

The Nature Conservancy is a leading conservation organization working around the world to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. The Conservancy and its more than 1 million members have protected nearly 120 million acres worldwide. Visit The Nature Conservancy on the Web at
