Vermont is a particularly nature-rich state, with three quarters of its area covered in forest. Each of the main forest types -- beech-maple, pine, and spruce -- are home to unique communities of animals, making the Green Mountain State an excellent place to discover and learn about wildlife. Black Bears forage in hardwood forests, while Moose feed in various wetlands. Pine forests host state bird Hermit Thrush, and iconic northern species Spruce Grouse and Black-backed Woodpecker can be found in spruce forests, especially around bogs. Animals are often the face of an ecosystem, so getting acquainted with the most representative species is always useful. You can do this with the portable reference Vermont Wildlife, which includes beautiful illustrations of over 140 common and familiar mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, butterflies, and other insects as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 wildlife-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its animals. Made in the USA.
