VT BHA Open Space Presents: A Land Ethic Surrounding Land Access with Andrea Shortsleeve, a private lands habitat biologist with VT Fish and Wildlife Department.
The focus of Open Space is to promote a place where all are welcome to learn, connect, and share regardless of background, knowledge and experience. Open Space was conceived as providing a place for female perspective, but has evolved into a space that encourages participation of those dissuaded or intimidated by more traditional conversation/formats. Curiosity is encouraged and respectful dialogue goes without saying.
This presentation will focus on what a land ethic is, how it relates to land access, and what this can mean for landowners and hunters in VT. How can we as hunters and outdoor enthusiasts maintain the tradition of open access to land in New England? September 14th 8:00. We hope to see you there.
This will be an interactive virtual event, so there will be plenty of time for questions and answers, or send your questions in ahead of time to [email protected].
