“A Walk in the Woods” Managing Wildlife Habitat
From Outdoor JournalMore on this episode »
Few things are more satisfying for landowners than seeing deer, wild turkeys and other wildlife on their property. And few things are more important to deer and other wildlife than engaged landowners. About 80 percent of Vermont’s forested habitat is privately owned, and as more land is lost to development each year, the importance of the remaining habitat has steadily grown. With the help of organizations like the Vermont Woodlands Association, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department hosts workshops that educate landowners on the benefits of actively managing wildlife habitat.
