Where our lands and waters are healthiest, let’s work to keep them thriving!
What are the common traits of healthy lands and waters?
- Many different species of plants and animals sharing a common “home” (biodiversity)
- Thriving populations of “indicator species,” such as native brook trout, that only live in clean environments
- Substantial tracts of forests, meadows and undeveloped land
- Connected forests and rivers that provide safe “corridors” for wildlife
- Fewer invasive species (both plants and animals)
- Rural or low-density development
