Remember Nongame Wildlife Fund Tax Checkoff

Vermonters with an interest in conserving wildlife should consider making a donation to the Nongame Wildlife Fund on line 29a of their state income tax form this tax season.  The fund helps to conserve some of Vermont’s most threatened wildlife species such as bald eagles, lynx, and turtles, in addition to helping many of the state’s imperiled pollinators such as butterflies and bees.
