About Elm Brook Wildlife Management Area
Elm Brook Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is located in northwest Vermont in the town of Fairfield. Lapland Road crosses through it between Stratton and Morey Roads. It is 208 acres in size. The WMA is owned by the State of Vermont and managed by the Vermont Fish andWildlife Department.

The WMA is located on gently sloping land southeast of a row of small hills. Elevations vary from 600 to 900 feet. Elm Brook runs through the southeastern edge of the property. It is 80% forested with a mix of red and sugar maple, yellow birch, beech, hemlock, and white pine. The remainder is active agricultural land, brushy fields, and scattered apple trees. There is a beaver-created wetland as well, including an alder swamp. There are some vernal pools in the forest, which are important breeding habitats for amphibians. There is also a deer wintering area in the northeast corner of the WMA.
