If you enjoy wildlife be sure to make plans to attend the annual Dead Creek Wildlife Day in Addison, VT on Saturday, October 5.
Dead Creek Wildlife Day has been listed as one of Vermontís ďTop 10 Fall Events,Ē and with good reason. Activities at Dead Creek Wildlife Day are especially for people who enjoy hunting, fishing, birdwatching, or learning about Vermontís diverse wildlife. The event will be held at the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Departmentís Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA) on Route 17 west of Route 22A.
Early risers can begin the day with bird banding demonstrations at 7:00 a.m. Two large tents at the Dead Creek WMA headquarters will open at 9:30 a.m. and feature wildlife-related exhibits and kidsí craft activities such as decoy carving, face painting and building bluebird boxes.
The dayís main activities run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and include nature walks, illustrated talks, live wildlife presentations, hunting dog demonstrations, fishing and hunting tips, and much more. All events are free, and a free shuttle bus will provide regular access to nearby field events throughout the day.
The festival is hosted by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, Vermont
Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, Otter Creek Audubon Society, and Vermont Federation of Sportsmenís Clubs.
