Connecticut River Valley
The Connecticut River Valley of central New England is similar in several ways to the Merrimack River (to the east) and the Hudson River (to the west), in which the low-elevation areas are heavily urbanized or farmed and the surrounding hills are relatively undisturbed. In this region, we maintain an extensive network of long-term reference sites and Observatories. These include five wood turtle streams monitored for over 10 years, five eastern box turtle populations first studied in 2005, and three spotted turtle populations first studied in 1993-1995.
