Join the Castleton BHA club, Vermont Fish and Wildlife, and the National Turkey Federation on April 10th at Otter Creek WMA to plant trees along the creek. These trees will help stabilize bank erosion, add food sources for wildlife, and increase shade. We will also be helping remove over 800ft of barbed wire fence that has caused problems for hunting dogs and wildlife.
Bring your own food and water and if you have them, gloves, shovels, pliers, hammer and wire cutters (extras too). Check the weather and dress accordingly.
We will be meeting at the Otter Creek WMA parking lot at 9 a.m. to split into groups. We'll work until 3 p.m. but you are free to come and go as you're available.
We will be taking special precautions at this event to follow coronavirus guidelines, including:
