Join Vermont Fish & Wildlife biologists and habitat managers to tour an alder habitat management site. This habitat management area focusing on woodcock habitat was started in the early 2000s and was recently restarted this winter. Topics discussed will include alder habitat and regeneration techniques, woodcock life history and habitat preference, historic land use, forest succession, and general birding of a unique habitat type.
This event is suitable for children as young as 8 years of age. Waterproof boots are recommended and be prepared for a little non-strenuous hiking.
Meet at East Hill WMA Parking lot on Marsh Road. Please carpool if possible.
