We gladly share our home with creatures of all shapes and sizes.
Beaver, deer, geese, newts, rabbits, bobcats, bears, weasels, moose and woodpeckers…oh my. With thousands of acres of untouched woodlands, rocky sanctuaries, and grassy meadows, the Western Slopes region is home to healthy populations of fascinating, wild neighbors. Many can be easily spotted from trails, while others are more elusive. There are four full seasons of hunting and trapping for big and small game, bird watching, and scores of ongoing educational and conservation efforts to keep it all safe and sound for generations to come. When the weather is doubtful, visit the lifelike flock at the Birds of Vermont Museum.
The 2013 Great Backyard Bird Count will be held from February 15-18. Learn how you can participate at their website.
