Saturday, January 29
Join Ethan Tapper, the Chittenden County Forester for the Vermont Dept. of Forests, Parks and Recreation, and Andrea Shortsleeve, Wildlife Biologist for Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, for a free, public walk of an active forest management project at the Hinesburg Town Forest (HTF). This walk will highlight winter wildlife ecology, wildlife tracking, and how the active management of the HTF is expected to influence wildlife habitat and behavior.
To join the walk, meet at 1PM at the HTF trailhead on Hayden Hill Road East, 0.3 miles from the intersection with Texas Hill Road. Please note that the Hayden Hill Road East trailhead is not accessible from Hayden Hill Road West, and that if you plug “Hinesburg Town Forest” into your GPS, it will send you to the incorrect trailhead. Please come prepared to spend 2 hours out in the winter elements, including some walking over slippery and uneven surfaces.
