PITTSFORD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont wildlife management area has nearly doubled in size thanks to a land donation by the Vermont Electric Power Company.

The Pomainville Wildlife Management Area in Pittsford has added two sections of land that will increase its total area from 360 acres to 572 acres.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife says the additions include a small section of flood plain forest along the Otter Creek and a large parcel of softwood forest on the east side of U.S. Route 7.

Fish and Wildlife’s Jane Lazorchak says bird watchers favor the grasslands in the management area. The new section will improve deer winter habitat and serve as a wildlife travel corridor.
