In 2010, the Vermont Department of Health conducted a survey of the prevalence of the disease Equine Encephalitis on deer and moose populations in Vermont. They are repeating the study, and are looking for volunteers in the Bennington area.
Surveying will occur on two weekends in November, on the 5th and 6th, and 12th and 13th. Wildlife biologists will be present to help teach volunteers about the process.
