The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources is creating a new management plan for Whipstock Hill Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Bennington County. The agency will hold public hearings to allow stakeholders to provide input on the plan. The Agency uses a rigorous public input process for developing long range management plans to ensure all ideas and interests are properly considered.
Located in Bennington, the 425-acre Whipstock Hill WMA is dominated by Whipstock Hill. It contains large deer winter areas and state significant wetlands. General information about these lands is available at http://tinyurl.com/Whipstock13.
The meeting will feature a short presentation followed by an opportunity for questions and comments. There will also be an opportunity to view maps and inventory data and for unstructured interaction with foresters, biologists, and planners from the stewardship team. The team will be available to answer questions and solicit comments about Whipstock Hill WMA.
The meeting will be held from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at Community College of Vermont (CCV) at 324 Main Street, Bennington, Vermont.
