Missisquoi NWR has been participating in Vermont's "Green Up Day" each year. This year as a result of two floods which inundated neighboring homes and carried debris from up river the refuge had an unprecedented amount of trash to clean up. Thanks to some hearty volunteers from Global Foundries and Keurig Green Mountain we were able to make significant progress in "Greening Up" the refuge. A dumpster was filled in matter of hours along with 31 tires, a garage door and various other metal items which will be recycled. Thanks to our volunteers for all the support!
