ISLAND POND, Vt. (AP) — The general public is being invited to tour a large tract of timberland in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

The July 12 “walk in the woods” is organized by the Vermont Woodlands Association, Plum Creek, and the Conte Wildlife Refuge.

The tours will include visiting a deer habitat, an active timber harvesting operation, a quick stop at the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge visitor center and a woodcock habitat enhancement area.

The tour is free, but participants must preregister by July 10.

People taking the tour will meet in Island Pond and ride by bus to the tour area.
