MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife has a new program to help conserve open spaces and wildlife habitat in the state.

The department’s new “All In” Habitat Stamp is fashioned on the federal duck stamp.

The stamp is available for purchase on the department’s website and is available on 2015 hunting or fishing licenses when purchased online.

Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter says people have asked the department to add a small voluntary fee to license purchases that would go directly into improving habitat and providing access to lands.

The proceeds from the stamp sales will be used to acquire and manage wildlife areas. One of the first such sites is the Lemon Fair Wildlife Management Area in Bridport.
