Wetlands in our area

As can be seen in the photo below Windham is abutted by six towns. The blue areas within each town’s boundary are wetlands. ( data from the Vermont Geodata Portal). Just a casual look at the picture does not tell much more. But if the area of the wetlands is calculated and then charted it becomes a little more interesting.

Windham is the smallest in area, but has a higher percent of wetlands than any of the other six surrounding towns.
