VTF&W Provides New Streambank Management Area Maps
The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department provides new maps on its website of the lands it owns along the shorelines.
Fish and Wildlife staff developed shoreline management area maps for more than 200 plots covering nearly 100 miles of shoreline statewide. These newly created maps illustrate shoreline areas with public access in perpetuity. A user-friendly overview map contains narratives describing stream sections and their associated fisheries.
“These maps will help people who hunt, fish, trap or view wildlife along Vermont’s rivers and streams,” said Vermont Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Christopher Herrick. “The land was purchased with funding primarily provided by the sale of fishing licenses and federal taxes on the manufacture of fishing tackle.”
