Forestry and Wildlife Consultant, Patrick (Pat) Bartlett will share his unique slide show of his encounters with Vermont’s wildlife including bear, moose, fisher, beaver, porcupines, coyote, bobcats and more. It’s a world he knows well in a career that has spanned over 30 years managing forests and wildlife habitat. His discussion will include wildlife patterns and populations swings and a diverse variety of wildlife’s habitat needs. Pat will conclude his presentation with time for questions and discussion.
In 1987 Bartlett Forestry & Wildlife Habitat was established by Patrick Bartlett. His goal was to bring wildlife habitat awareness to the forestry community and was the first private consultant forester in Vermont to use the words “Wildlife Habitat” in his company name. Ahead of his time, his client base grew quickly, as he incorporated sustainable forestry management practices and wildlife habitat improvements in all of his management plans and projects.
Patrick has served as the elected Chairman of the Consulting Foresters Association and has testified on Current Use topics. His articles have been featured in Northern Woodlands Magazine and he has appeared numerous times on the “Across the Fence” program on Channel 3 of Burlington, Vermont. Most recently, Patrick was invited to give a keynote address on sustainable forestry in the 21st Century at the Global Classrooms International Model UN Conference at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. Currently, Patrick is serving his second term as the Governor’s appointee to the State of Vermont’s Current Use Program Advisory Board.
Having been a forestry and wildlife consultant for 35 years, Patrick now enjoys devoting more time to teaching animal tracking workshops, tree and plants identification, foraging for wild mushrooms and leading guided nature tours in Vermont.
