Topics: Wildlife Management Area

Nestled in the northwestern corner of Vermont, the 872-acre Maquam Wildlife Management Area is nearly split in half by route 36. The southern half, or Lampman portion, is mostly woodlands while the northern half, or Maquam Bay side, borders Lake Champlain. The Maquam WMA and surrounding land not only has a rich history, it also has fertile soils, productive wetlands and a well managed forest that support a rich diversity of habitats and wildlife. The wetland portion is great for spotting waterfowl, wading birds and aquatic mammals like beaver, muskrat and river otters. The early successional habitat is great for grouse and woodcock. Adjacent farmland and hardwoods attract turkey, deer and a host of other popular wildlife species.
