Everyone: this is a day not to be missed in beautiful Addison, VT. The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has really got it going on, such an excellent agency! Their website is stellar, do check it out for all kinds of activities and information!

A couple of years ago when I was staying in Middlebury, I happened upon the Dead Creek Wildlife Day and the new opening of the Visitor Center. Wow! Excellent interactive and hands on displays and great park rangers with answers to all your questions. There are tents in the back with so many wonderful activities going on, it is just unbelievable! Here are a few links to spark your interest!

Addison is gorgeous and you can come back later in October/early November to view the snow geese in the fields. It is quite a sight to behold. This has been one of the most memorable events I've ever experienced in Vermont. If you catch it right, thousands of snow geese on take off and landing! There is a new viewing station at the Visitor's Center for inclement weather. ... ldlife-day ... tor-center ... hedule.pdf

The Department is hosting some great educational wildlife walks. One of which I wish I could have experienced in Walden, their foliage walk, but it is one week before my arrival and I will be in Woodstock for the Forestry Festival at Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Park.

Snow geese: “Dead Creek WMA in Addison is beloved for its wildlife viewing and waterfowl hunting opportunities. Starting late September, thousands of people visit the WMA every year to watch the fall snow geese migration. Snow geese touch down at Dead Creek and the surrounding farms by the thousands, creating a spectacle that is among the best wildlife-watching opportunities in Vermont. The migration peaks in mid- to late- October through early November, and is usually passed by mid-November.”

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
