Join Ethan Tapper, Chittenden County Forester, and Andrea Shortsleeve, Wildlife Biologist for Vermont Fish and Wildlife, at 7:00 p.m., on Tuesday, September 15 for a virtual presentation on Vermont’s wildlife, wildlife ecology and forest management focusing on the Andrews Community Forest, a public, conserved property owned by the Town of Richmond.
This event is co-sponsored by Vermont Coverts and the Richmond Free Library and will explain how an upcoming forest management project on this property is expected to influence wildlife habitat and behavior.
Bring your wildlife, habitat management and forestry questions, both general and specific to the Andrews Community Forest, for a Q & A session after the presentation.
This event is one of a series of virtual events and learning opportunities designed to help the public engage and learn about this work in the midst of the pandemic. You can learn more about these learning opportunities by emailing Ethan at firstname.lastname@example.org, signing up for his mailing list, or staying tuned to the Andrews Community Forest playlist on the Chittenden County Forester YouTube Channel.
