We are thrilled to have sponsored the Montpelier Bioblitz on July 21-22, 2018! For 24 hours, biologists and members of the community (including our in-house pollinator expert, Leif Richardson, Ph.D.) banded together to survey and catalog all flora and fauna in Montpelier, while round-the-clock activities for all ages happened in Hubbard Park and the North Branch Nature Center.

Senior Ecologist Leif Richardson, Ph.D was interviewed on Vermont Public Radio about the recent sightings of the Fernald's bumblebee, Bombus fernaldae in Vermont. While relatively common elsewhere in the northeast, Bombus fernaldae's presence in Vermont is notable--as is its behavior.

Stone was honored to have been awarded both the GIS & Data Science Project of the Year from the Vermont Center for Geographic Information, and the American Council of Engineering Companies of Vermont (ACEC/VT) Grand Award for our part in the Methods and Tools for Transportation Resilience in Vermont project. In collaboration with Fitzgerald Environmental, DuBois & King, and Smart Mobility, Stone created a web-based application that identifies bridges, culverts, and road embankments within watersheds that are vulnerable to flood damage, estimates the risk to those features, and offers mitigation measures. The application is available through a variety of web-browsers and devices for free use.

We are proud to be part of this project and look forward to joining City Market with its grand opening later this year.
