In Vermont, the natural world is part of our way of life, and the Vermont Habitat Stamp is how we ensure its future. Your Habitat Stamp helps keep rivers clean, woods connected, and meadowlands open. Your donation also leverages federal dollars for wildlife habitat conservation.

Now Complete! New Flexible Baffle Installed on Mill Brook
With hearty thanks to all Habitat Stamp supporters, VT Fish & Wldlife Department, with the White River Partnership, USFWS and the Greater Upper Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited successfully installed the baffles and watched the culvert transform from a long, steep chute to a series of steps and pools that fish can navigate more easily.
Now we will continue to monitor Mill Brook, looking for adult fish migrating upstream and young fish hatching in this tributary to the White River. We will also watch the baffles themselves to see how they hold up during the spring melt, when such installments can be buffeted and damaged by large boulders and ice floes. If this experiment succeeds, anglers will find more healthy trout in the stream, but the fish and other aquatic organisms that can once again spawn, avoid floods, and find cool water in Mill Brook will be the biggest winners.
