The History of Wildlife in Vermont

Kim Royar, Special Assistant to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Commissioner

From early bounties on wolves, mountain lions, and bobcats, to the land clearing resulting from the sheep boom in the early 1800’s, changes in Vermont’s laws and landscape have had major impacts on the State’s wildlife over the centuries. Kim Royar has been a wildlife biologist with the Department of Fish and Wildlife for over 30 years. Her illustrated presentation will follow the evolution of Vermont’s wildlife populations right up to the imminent 2014 hunting season. In addition, Kim will bring a sample of wildlife pelts and skulls to help demonstrate some of the various wildlife species that reside in Vermont.
