Wendy Butler joins Vt. Fish & Wildlife Board

NEW HAVEN — Gov. Phil Scott has appointed three new members to represent Addison, Essex, and Grand Isle counties on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board. The new members are Wendy Butler from Addison County, Mike Kolsun from Essex County, and Bryan McCarthy from Grand Isle County.
The fourteen-member Fish and Wildlife Board is a group of Vermont citizens that enact fish and wildlife regulations for hunting, fishing, and trapping. Members serve six-year terms.
Wendy Butler lives in New Haven. A certified volunteer hunter education instructor since 2007, Butler enjoys guiding new hunters, many of whom have returned with their first deer, turkey, or duck. She has instructed women in outdoor skills at Becoming an Outdoor Woman Camp and at Doe Camp. Butler works to improve wildlife habitat on her family’s 250-acre property, releasing apple trees, creating brush piles, and working with the Natural Resources Conservation Service to improve habitat for golden-winged warblers.
“We’re glad to welcome Wendy, Mike, and Bryan to the board,” said Kevin Lawrence, Fish and Wildlife Board chair. “Board members are charged with the complex task of setting fishing, hunting, and trapping regulations after evaluating the scientific recommendations and legal advice from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, along with the input from the state’s hunters, anglers, trappers and wildlife watchers. I look forward to the fresh perspective these new members will bring to our discussions.”
“The Fish and Wildlife Board members bring a strong level of personal experience to the job of setting Vermont’s hunting, fishing, and trapping regulations,” Gov. Scott said. “Volunteer board members give a great deal of their time and energy to the task, so I’m grateful to them for stepping up to serve the people of Vermont.”
