About the Moosalamoo Association

The mission of the Association is to:

Collaborate with public entities to plan, manage, and provide stewardship for wildlife habitat conservation and quality public recreation opportunities and facilities.

Promote responsible recreation participation and environmental awareness through interpretation, education and resource monitoring.

Demonstrate the unique capabilities of public and private partners working together.

Strengthen partnerships at the local level in cooperative projects such as trail construction and maintenance, wildlife habitat improvement, or visual enhancement of roadsides.

The goal of the Stewardship Initiative is to enhance wildlife habitats, to conduct conservation planning and conservation education activities, and to complete inventory and monitoring work needed on National Forest System lands and adjacent private lands in the 30,000 acre Moosalamoo area of the Green Mountain National Forest in central Vermont. This is an innovative, landscape level project that serves as a demonstration to other public-private partnerships throughout the country. Moosalamoo is made-up of a rich mosaic of landscapes containing a unique set of critical habitats including cliff-based nesting sites for peregrine falcons, suspected summer habitats of various bat species, rich wetland homes of numerous reptiles and amphibians, and a blend of upland hardwoods and upper elevation spruce-fir forests.
