Vermont Public Lands Map
Hello! Thanks for visiting the site and for looking for this map. Many of you saw the beautiful public lands of Vermont map at the 2002 VTNEA Teachers Convention at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds. We don't have additional copies of the map but, using data from the Spatial Analysis Lab, we made a simpler 3 color map showing Vermont public lands in Federal, State and Municipal ownership. The map was made using ARCVIEW and is one of a series of maps that the Alliance will be launching in the coming weeks.
You can see that map full screen by clicking here.
