Time: 10:00am to 1:00pm
Location: East Hill WMA, Wolcott, Vermont | map
Join a VT Fish & Wildlife biologist Tim Appleton on a tour of the East Hill Wildlife Management Area in Wolcott for a guided tour and discussion about the importance and uniqueness of a wildlife management area and how they differ from other types of state lands such as state forest and state parks. We will meet at the WMA parking area off Marsh Road for a leisurely walk on relatively flat ground but may go off-trail at times. We’ll discuss tracks, trees, mammals, birds, historical resources, management activities and any other curiosities we find along the way.
Please bring snowshoes and wear appropriate clothing and footwear for being outdoors in winter, including extra layers, food, and water, as well as binoculars if you have them. You should also be able to walk 1-2 miles at a relaxed pace over a relatively flat trail while wearing snowshoes, if needed.
