"Creating and Managing Wildlife Habitat"

Andrea Shortsleeve, a habitat biologist with Vermont Fish and Wildlife, will discuss how to create and manage wildlife habitat on private lands for a variety of species, from songbirds to butterflies, to game species such as deer, bobcats, turkeys and grouse . She will also talk about  the federal Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) which provides landowners with free professional conservation planning on their property and funding to complete recommended habitat improvements.

“Landowners are an essential part of the state’s conservation effort,” said Shortsleeve, who noted that 80 percent of Vermont’s land is privately owned. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in wildlife habitat management and conservation techniques to this discussion.
