Season Two Kick Off!

April 1st has come and gone here in Vermont, so it's time to get the second season of WildPaths underway. This year we're hoping to encourage more folks across the state to add to our project page in order to build a central place where data on wildlife crossings can be accessed.

We have been working with local conservation commissions and planning commissions to look at the intersection between infrastructure needs and wildlife needs and are confident that data from the WildPaths Project will help inform future decisions. This year we will be focusing some of our work in the Cold Hollow to Canada service area on towns that are about to embark on updated culvert and road erosion inventories. So snapshots of culverts near animal crossing observations will be encouraged.

If you would like to learn more about the project in the meantime please visit our website at www.coldhollowtocanada.org. We'll be looking for folks who want to dig a little deeper as well by signing up for a specific roadway. You can Adopt a Roadway by contacting the project coordinators at WildPaths@coldhollowtocanada.org. Because our service area covers seven towns in the Northern Green Mountains, we will only be assigning routes in those towns. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about how we've worked with Vermont Fish & Wildlife and VTrans to identify particular roadways of interest.

Many thanks to all of you who continue to contribute! Please help spread the word about WildPaths.

Cheers!
