Gwendolyn (she/her) grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from Oberlin College in Ohio. Gwendolyn was introduced to Audubon in 2002, diving into the wonderful preschool and family programs with her child Ella. She deepened her connection to Audubon as a volunteer with Ella, monitoring Eastern Bluebird nest boxes and Eastern Red-Backed Salamander populations. Gwendolyn Causer has been teaching environmental education programs with Audubon Vermont since 2005. Gwendolyn’s first love in nature is botany and she does most of her birding by ear. She is passionate about creating equitable access to nature for communities historically excluded from the environmental movement. Gwendolyn lives near Lake Champlain in Burlington. She enjoys Nordic skiing, swimming, and skating on "wild" ice.
