HOW YOU CAN HELP

In the past 33 years, citizens and scientists working together have discovered new information about how birds live, reproduce, migrate, and communicate. During that same time, the Birds of Vermont Museum has welcomed our 1st and our 110,000th visitors. We plan to be here for another 33 years to continue sharing stories about birds, art, Bob Spear, conservation, wildlife, and how they all fit together.

In 2020, we plan to create updated species signage to more accurately reflect new information about ranges, migration, taxonomy, and relevant conservation issues. Please help us complete this project.
