Lower Otter Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA), Sand Road, Ferrisburg, VT

Visit Lower Otter Creek WMA to view the results of a timber harvest with wildlife in mind.  Walk with Biologist Dave Sausville and Forester Matt Leonard as they showcase the different forest and habitat management techniques used to manage this property for wildlife.  We will visit harvested areas and discuss the strategies used to achieve specific objectives and goals on the parcel.  These same forest management practices are used to enhance habitat on private land.  Join us as we take a look at this site post-harvest during our series From the Tailgate that looked at this site from pre-harvest marking to completion.  Bring your questions about forest and wildlife habitat management.  Registration is not required but appreciated.  For more information or directions please contact Lisa Sausville at 802-877-2777 or info@vtcoverts.org This workshop cosponsored by VT Coverts, VT Fish and Wildlife and VT Forest Parks and Recreation is free and open to the public.
