MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife has released a guidebook designed to help landowners manage wildlife on their property.

John Austin, Fish and Wildlife’s lands and habitat program manager, says private landowners are a critical partner in the conservation of Vermont wildlife.

The book, A Landowner’s Guide - Wildlife Habitat Management for Lands in Vermont, was developed by Fish and Wildlife Department in partnership with the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation as well as the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service.

The guide gives recommendations on improving habitat for specific species and for fish and wildlife in general.

It includes recommendations for species such as deer, turkeys, hare, ducks, and grouse, as well as nongame species from songbirds to amphibians.
