Healthy Forests

Vermont’s forested landscape is well known for its year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, brilliant fall foliage, the world’s best maple syrup, and… bird habitat! Every summer forests around the Green Mountain state resound with the some of the greatest diversity of bird song found anywhere in the US. Migratory songbirds, including Wood Thrush and Black-throated Blue Warbler, and resident species alike look to find high-quality habitat for successfully raising their young. Audubon Vermont’s Healthy Forests programs provide opportunities for all Vermonters; from landowners and land managers to consumers and legislators and everyone in between, to be part of globally important bird conservation efforts.
