Conserving vernal pools in Maine's towns using a locally driven, collaborative approach: The Maine Vernal Pool Special Area Management Plan

Towns in Maine now have access to an innovative, locally driven vernal pool conservation tool that addresses both the conservation of vernal pools in towns rural areas while supporting development in town's growth zones.  This voluntary tool is being implemented in Orono and Topsham, Maine and may open the door to fostering both economic and ecological health in our towns.  Arum Calhoun, our speaker, is a wetland ecologist and faculty member at the University of Maine.  Her work stresses the importance of conserving natural resources (wetlands and vernal pools) and/or target species (wood frogs, spotted salamanders, and blue-spotted salamanders) on private lands by addressing both human and ecological dimensions.
