The Windham Regional Woodlands Association will host a tour of a seldom seen area in the
Roaring Brook Wildlife Management Area in Vernon, Vt . This area is notable for many different wildlife habitats including a dry oak forest with many different varieties of oak, including Red, Black, White, Chestnut and Scarlet Oak, as well as Dogwood, and Sassafras. The walk will be led by Martin Langeveld, joined by Bob Zaino. Natural Community Ecologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
We will leave from his home at 131 Woodland Road in Vernon which abuts the area we will visit. Parking is available at his home (4-5 cars), others can park along Woodland Road.
We recommend people wear sturdy shoes, bring water, bring hiking poles if they like those,
and be prepared for some light uphills and downhills, with a few hundred feet of elevation
