Wildlife Management Areas

In 1919 the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department first acquired 1,000 acres of wildlife habitat in Milton, Vermont, purchasing wetlands that established the Sandbar Waterfowl Refuge. This was the forerunner of today's Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs). Today the Department owns over 80 Wildlife Management Areas totaling over 118,000 acres throughout Vermont.

WMAs play an important role in meeting the Department's mission. Management of these areas particularly emphasizes the conservation of fish, wildlife and their habitat, and provides people with opportunities to enjoy these resources through fish and wildlife based outdoor activities.

WMAs have been purchased over time using several funding sources, including funds from state hunting license sales, federal tax revenues for the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration (Pittman-Robertson) Fund, Vermont Duck Stamp Fund, Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, Ducks Unlimited, The North American Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and the North American Wetland Conservation Fund. In recent years, valuable assistance has been provided by a number of conservation organizations especially The Nature Conservancy, The Vermont Land Trust, and the Conservation Fund.
