Return to Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program Page
Early Successional habitat is essential to the survival of many wildlife species and is in decline in the southern reaches of Vermont
Early Successional habitat
Deer wintering areas
Deer wintering areas are a critical habitat type that are in decline in Vermont. These areas help deer survive the winter by reducing snow depths on the ground and provide shelter from harsh winter temperatures. Proper management of these areas is critical for the survival of Vermont's deer herd.
Clay plain forest restoration is accomplished by the planting of native trees and shrubs. This habitat is rare in the Champlain Valley due to past agricultural activities
