West Mountain WMA is the largest wildlife management area in Vermont. It is a vast area of bogs and evergreens and is known for its remote character and large moose population.
Since 1999, the Agency of Natural Resources has managed West Mountain WMA for natural resource conservation and public access, and has managed a public access easement on adjacent lands now belonging to the Weyerhaeuser Timber Company. This complex project has involved collaboration with partner organizations including The Nature Conservancy, Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Vermont Land Trust, and Weyerhaeuser, as well as numerous local and state constituent groups.
