The Birds of Vermont Museum integrates elements of one man’s vision into a whole that highlights art, science, and conservation. Join us this afternoon to discover what we offer, build your own art-science practice, and discuss how these approaches together grow a conservation ethic.
Starting Wednesday, January 23, we’ll host the new six-week It’s a Bird’s Life series. Sponsored by a local Community Senior Center and the Birds of Vermont Museum, meet on six consecutive Wednesdays at 1:30 at the Birds of Vermont Museum, and learn more about specific Vermont birds—as well as two sessions connecting coffee and maple to birds!
Common Grounds is our art show in recognition of 100 years of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and its conservation consequences. Experience over 40 bird-focused artworks connecting the themes of commonality, conservation, migration, and coordination among peoples, species, places, and time.
Show is open from May 1 to October 31, 2018 • Included with Museum admission
