Nulhegan Basin

Part of the Silvio O. Conte National Wildlife Refuge in Vermont, the Nulhegan basin is where classic New England forests run into the wild Canadian boreal forests.

The Wilderness Society works to keep this area protected for generations to come. The Nulhegan Basin needs proper refuge management and protection from unrestricted off-road vehicle use.

Why the Nulhegan Basin

A diverse region of mountain peaks and bog filled valleys, the Nulhegan Basin is a refuge for lots of wildlife like songbirds and black bears. Without proper management, this unique landscape could be lost forever.

Work we’re doing

The Wilderness Society and other partners are working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to guarantee the long term protection of the Nulhegan Basin.
