If You Find a Sick or Injured Animal

Community Wildlife Program

The Community Wildlife Program (CWP) provides municipal planners and non-governmental organizations with the most up-to-date information on conservation science and resources for implementing their conservation projects.

The program helps towns take their community’s conservation goals, use them to identify important wildlife habitat, and translate these goals into language that can use be used in their town plans.

GMCC Junior Counselor Program

The Junior Counselor (JC) Program provides experienced campers the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills, develop a sound work ethic, and enrich their understanding of Vermont’s natural resources.

Partner in Conservation

Eighty-one percent of Vermont’s land is in private ownership, so participation from the state’s landowners and municipalities is crucial for conserving Vermont’s fish and wildlife.

Trout in the Classroom (TIC) program brings the science of Vermont's aquatic ecosystems into schools across the state.

Through the TIC program, students raise brook trout at their school, monitoring and supporting all stages of their development, before releasing them into a local stream. Students learn about early trout development and anatomy, habitat, water chemistry, life cycles and food.

Bird Survey Results

Conservation Education

The department offers a variety of educational resources for children, formal and non-formal educators, and the general public.
