The Natural History of Rock Point

Because of Rock’s Points incredible diversity of geologic features and associated natural communities, it is a hotspot for birding, botany, tracking, and all other fields within natural history. It’s proximity to UVM and prominence in the region for biodiversity and geology have attracted many students. The Diocese’s own interest in preserving the ecological integrity of the land has resulted in a number of wonderful assessments and reports over the years. Burlington Geographic conducted a survey of the land and published their work here: Burlington Geographic.

Teage also keeps a blog that often features photos about, explorations of, and investigations into Rock Point’s natural history.
