East Hill WMA Tour and Winter Wildlife Tracking, Feb. 22
VT Fish and Wildlife biologist Tim Appleton will lead a free guided tour for the public of the East Hill Wildlife Management Area in Wolcott on Saturday, February 22.
“We will meet at 10:00 a.m. at the WMA parking area off Marsh Road for a leisurely walk on relatively flat ground, and we may go off-trail at times,” said Appleton. “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 one to two miles at a relaxed pace while wearing snowshoes, if needed.
Participation is limited to the first 15 people who register on Vermont Fish and Wildlife’s website at this link: https://vtfishandwildlife.com/event/east-hill-wma-tour-and-winter-wildli...
The website also includes a map of the WMA.
East Hill Wildlife Management Area is one of 99 wildlife management areas owned and managed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department for wildlife-based recreation such as hunting, fishing and wildlife watching. These lands are purchased and managed in part using funds from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wildlife Restoration Program, using excise taxes on hunting and shooting equipment, as well as through hunting and trapping licenses and donations to the Vermont Habitat Stamp program.
