Salamanders are a common sighting on the trails of the Birds of Vermont Museum. The Eastern Newt is a salamander that can be found throughout the Eastern United States. Continue reading “The Eastern Newt”
One of our favorite things to do is work with volunteers on special projects—regularly in the building and outside in the gardens, as well as special volunteer work parties before our “open season”. This year, unfortunately, the novel coronavirus interrupted this! But now we are open, so…
We would love to have volunteers in and around the Museum! This is completely up to you and what you find comfortable. As always, we have lots of projects and need your help!
Indoors, volunteers greet visitors, tend the gift shop, organize materials, record data, and help us clean.
Outside, there are opportunities for trail maintenance, collecting natural history data, sanding and painting, and weeding. We have a few projects that can be done off-site. We could also use the help of a carpenter. It is pretty easy to maintain social distancing and get fresh air while you do these!
If you are interested in volunteering this year, please call us at 802-434-2167. We look forward to hearing from you!
