The special edition 2020 Habitat Stamp commemorates the formation of the Sandbar Waterfowl Refuge in 1920, the state's first Wildlife Management Area (WMA).
Today, we have conserved 100 WMAs totaling approximately 130,000 acres for healthy wildlife habitat! As the state moves into the next century of WMA conservation and management, we encourage you to enjoy these public lands. They contain some of the most unique natural communities in Vermont and represent a century’s worth of thoughtful planning and dedication. Explore them and experience wild Vermont firsthand!
Conservation and management of all WMAs is funded through sporting license sales, the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Fund, and the Vermont Habitat Stamp. Join the effort and help us continue wildlife conservation with your own Habitat Stamp:
Donations of $15.00 and more receive a 4"x5" Habitat Stamp sticker in the mail. A Habitat Stamp is not required to hunt, fish or trap, nor do you have to buy a sporting license to donate.
Your Habitat Stamp support conserves land, protects clean water, and restores healthy wildlife habitat.
Did you know your donation also leverages matching federal dollars? In 2019, these funds totaled an additional $179,000 for conservation work. Read more about 2019's accomplishments in the annual report:
