SHREWSBURY, Vt. (AP) — Officials from the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, the town of Shrewsbury and others on Saturday are going to be celebrating the state’s 100th Wildlife Management Area.

The Rutland Herald reports the event in which the name of the area in Shrewsbury will be held Saturday from noon until 2 p.m.

Biologists will give tours of the area.

The 526-acre property was acquired by the Fish and Wildlife Department earlier this year and connects other parcels of conserved land.

In addition to being Vermont’s 100th wildlife management area, 2020 is also the 100th anniversary of the state having wildlife management areas.
