Fish and wildlife staffer discusses Vermont’s ever-changing forest habitats and inhabitants

Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Join Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock for its next Working Woodlands Workshop, a discussion about Vermont’s forests and those animals and other wildlife who dwell in them on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 6-7:30 p.m.

Kim Royer, special assistant to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department Commissioner and bobcat expert, will discuss significant changes to Vermont’s forests over the last two to three centuries and the effect those alterations have had on native wildlife populations. She will focus on species such as beaver, otter, bobcat, fisher, wolf, and coyote and will bring skins and skulls to demonstrate various differences between the species.

The discussion is free and open to the public. It will be held indoors at the Forest Center at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, Woodstock. Parking is available in the overflow lot, located on Old River Road, across the street from the Billings Farm & Museum parking lot.
