Winter Wildlife Ecology and Forest Management at the Hinesburg Town Forest

December 3, 2019



Join Chittenden County Forester Ethan Tapper and Wildlife Biologist Andrea Shortsleeve with Vermont Fish and Wildlife for a free public walk of an active timber harvest at the Hinesburg Town Forest on Saturday, December 21, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. 

This walk will highlight winter wildlife ecology, wildlife tracking and the active management of the Hinesburg Town Forest as well as how this work is expected to influence wildlife habitat and behavior.  

The Hinesburg Town Forest is an 864-acre property owned and managed by the Town of Hinesburg and the Chittenden County Forester since the 1950’s.  It is a beloved resource used by people from all over the region for hiking, mountain biking, bird and wildlife-watching, hunting,  and other activities.

To join the walk, meet at 1:00 p.m. at the plow turnaround at the end of Economou Road, Huntington.  Be prepared to spend two hours out in the elements, including some walking over uneven surfaces.
