Species Distribution Maps

Use the links in the table below to reach an information page for a Vermont amphibian or reptile, or directly open or download the associated map showing their distribution in Vermont. The maps are available from the species info pages as well. PNG images (for quick viewing) and PDF versions (for better printing) are available. If you don’t already have Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDF files, you can download it for free from Adobe.

Feel free to print, distribute, or copy any of the maps, providing you give credit for them.

The species name link opens an information page; PNG links will open an image (about 200 KB), and a PDF link will open (or offer to download, depending on your browser settings) a 1 or 2 MB file.
