Take Ferrisburgh walk to see timber harvest result
FERRISBURGH — The organization Vermont Coverts, along with state wildlife officials, will host a walk through the woods in Ferrisburgh on June 22 to give members of the public a view of the results of a timber harvest with wildlife in mind. The walk will take place at the Lower Otter Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA), on Sand Road, in Ferrisburgh.
Biologist Dave Sausville and forester Matt Leonard will showcase the different forest and habitat management techniques used to manage this property for wildlife. Participants 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.
Bring questions about forest and wildlife habitat management. Registration is not required but appreciated. For more information or directions contact Lisa Sausville at 802-877-2777 or [email protected].
