Awasos WMA Created in Vermont

Sign for the newly created Awakes WMA.

Vermont Fish & Wildlife biologists, staff from the Mt. Holly Conservation Trust, and generous members of the Doolittle family recently gathered to celebrate the opening of the 440-acre Awasos Wildlife Management Area Doolittle Block in Weston, VT. The new WMA grants permanent protection to a crucial piece of connecting land between two blocks of Okemo State Forest that were previously fragmented. This link is crucial to helping wide-ranging species like black bear, lynx, deer, and bobcat adapt to the changing landscape and climate. Additionally, the Awasos WMA provides habitat for wild brook trout, beech trees, lady slipper orchids, and more.
