The Corps has worked with a number of local communities, private sports groups, and state and federal agencies to monitor wildlife populations and improve natural habitats.

Each year the Corps participates in a state-wide study of reptile and amphibian populations and partners with agencies such as the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to:

• improve access to wildlife areas
• enhance habitat through apple tree release projects
• and conduct wildlife studies such as grouse brood surveys and Canada Goose Banding
