Wildlife on the Move: Protecting Landscape Connections One Parcel at A Time
December 15, 2020 @ 12:00PM — 1:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Bear and moose and bobcat, oh my! Join us to explore habitat needs and threats to many iconic Vermont animals and learn about the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor where hundreds of acres have been conserved in the last two years.
Vermont is very important to animals such as bear, moose and bobcat. These animals need large, undeveloped areas to survive. Vermont’s forests and mountains link wildlife habitat between NY and NH and New England and Canada. Climate change, invasive species, roads, and development are all threats. Many people are working hard to protect wildlife corridors—or undeveloped, natural landscapes—so these animals can survive, and thrive.
Join Kim Royar (biologist for VT Fish and Wildlife and Furbearer Project Leader) and Bob Heiser (regional director at Vermont Land Trust) as they explore these corridors and the threats facing animals. They will take a closer look at the Shuteville Hill Wildlife Corridor in Waterbury and Stowe. Nearly hundreds of acres have been conserved there in the last two years.
