Taxidermy at Otter Valley Union High School
Body: 

Getting high school students excited about science can be a challenge, especially if it requires staying after school. But at Otter Valley Union High School in Brandon, Vermont, there’s one biology teacher who has developed a program that has students actually looking forward to staying after school. Brad Frohlof, an avid deer hunter and 30-year teacher at Otter Valley, has infused his love for the outdoors into a unique, hands-on program that introduces students to the art and science of taxidermy.

Pomainville Wildlife Management Area
Body: 

The Pomainville Wildlife Management Area in Pittsford, VT covers 360 acres of former farmland along the east bank of the Otter Creek. Thanks to partnerships with the Pomainville family, Ducks Unlimited and other conservation groups, this unique property was acquired by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department in 2005, and its diverse habitats are now being managed and restored for the benefit of both fish and wildlife.

Batten Kill River Restoration Project
Body: 

Vermont is home to many productive trout streams, but none as famous as the Batten Kill. For more than 150 years, the river's reputation for producing big brown trout and beautiful native brook trout has lured anglers from across the country to southwest Vermont. Starting in the 1970s, the Batten Kill was managed strictly as a wild trout stream, initially with great success. But in the mid-90s a dramatic decline in the number of yearling trout had state biologists, anglers and others scrambling for answers. Thanks to a lot of hard work from a variety of groups, efforts are now underway to restore the Batten Kill as one of New England’s premier wild trout waters.

Becoming an Outdoor Family
Body: 

Since 1997, Groton State Forest has hosted Vermont’s Becoming an Outdoor Family workshop. For three days each spring, this annual event gives families the opportunity to camp, enjoy the park, and learn outdoor skills. More than 40 different hands-on classes are offered during the weekend. They showcase the wide variety of outdoor activities available to Vermonters, and help instill a basic understanding of environmental conservation. The only thing better than spending time outdoors, is spending time outdoors with your family.

Important Bird Areas
Body: 
Lake Champlain is home to hundreds of bird species that depend on its islands, wetlands, bottomland forests, and nearby fields for everything from food to nesting habitat. Within this diverse ecosystem there are a few truly unique locations designated as “Important Bird Areas” or IBA’s. The National Audubon Society's Important Bird Area program is part of a global effort to identify critical sites for birds across the planet. One of these sites encompasses 4 islands in northeastern Lake Champlain that are used by common terns for nesting. These islands are home to the largest inland population of terns in New England. A tern research project paid for in part by the Vermont Non-game Wildlife Fund is the focus of this segment, which was produced by Audubon Vermont and Peregrine Productions.

Trophy Trout
Body: 
In 1994, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department began stocking select river sections with large, 2-year-old trophy trout. At first, skeptics worried that these big hatchery trout would not provide a quality fishery, and that the money would be better spent improving habitat for wild fish. Well, the proof is in the putting to the test, and it did not take long for the Trophy Trout Program to win over even non-believers. Over the last 15 years, it's become extremely popular, and for good reason: if you hit a trophy water just right, you're in for some of the most exciting fishing Vermont has to offer.

Black Spot Disease
Body: 

Parasites are organisms that live off other living things. Fleas on a dog or ticks on a deer are common examples. Parasites are among the most successful animals on earth, and many have fascinating life cycles where they change form and move from one animal host to another. If you have ever fished for northern pike, bass, or panfish, chances are you have encountered a parasite known as black spot disease.
