Our Hands on the Land: Planning for Wildlife

       Do we know the wealth of wildlife that we have in our hills and valleys? What wildlife is at risk here, and how can we plan to maintain healthy habitat and strong ecosystems in our region?          

       Biologist Monica Przyperhart from VT Fish & Wildlife will give us an overview with her presentation: "Planning for Wildlife: Recognizing local habitat and taking steps to maintain it."

       She'll focus on habitat in the towns of Tunbridge, Strafford, Royalton, and Sharon. And we'll learn about online tools such as BioFInder, which can help identify Vermont lands and waters that support high priority ecosystems, natural communities, habitats and species.    

     By the end we'll all have a richer picture of the wildlife around us (both abundant and rare), how our land use choices affect wildlife, and how we can all plan as a community to keep wildlife habitat thriving for future years and coming generations.

      Refreshments will be offered afterward-- please feel free to bring some of your favorite cookies or other treats to share. This event is co-sponsored by the Tunbridge Planning Commission and the Tunbridge Library.
