Habitat Walk at Birdseye WMA
Join Fish & Wildlife Department biologist, Travis Hart, on a walk to discuss different habitat types across parts of the 3,000+ acre Birdseye WMA, which covers the towns of Castleton, Ira and Poultney. Walk through young forest and then the trail up Herrick Mountain discussing different species and habitat types as we climb. It is roughly 1.5 miles to the view of the valley and Lake Bomoseen.
Note* The climb to the top of Herrick Mountain is on a managed access road but is steep and may be difficult for some. Stops will be made along the way to discuss different features, but please be prepared for a steep climb. Dress appropriately including good hiking shoes and long pants to protect against ticks. Terrain will be varied and difficult.
Appropriate for Children of What Age – Due to the relatively steep incline of the climb up it is recommended that only older children attend that are able to walk 1.5 miles up steep terrain. 12+
Equipment Attendees should bring – Water to drink along the way, bug spray, walking stick or poles if you prefer to use them when hiking.
Limit: 30 participants
