Conservation Awards July

Conservation Awards July 2010– December 2011 photo: Sarah Wakefield/the Nature Conservancy 8 Black Mountain, Dummerston For 20 years The Nature Conservancy has acquired land here, creating a 600-acre reserve with numerous rare and unusal species. Black Mountainís high plant diversity is due in part to the horseshoe shape of the mountain which creates a water collecting bowl that produces ideal conditions for moist forests, streams, and wetlands. Pitch pine and scrub oak trees found in the drier area near the summit are normally associated with the sandy areas of the New England coast and are at the northern end of their range here. A 100-acre red pine community on the mountain is clearly visible from the village of West Dummerston. In June, a large population of mountain laurel produces a magnificent display of showy pink flowers. A 1.5 mile trail leads from the Rice Farm Road to the 1,280-foot summit.
