Steve Hagenbuch

Conservation Biologist

Steve has worked with Audubon in a variety of roles since 1998. Currently he is a conservation biologist with Audubon Vermont's Forest Bird Initiative. In this position Steve works with private landowners, municipalities, foresters, and land managers to promote management activities that will enhance the habitat value of forestland for priority bird species. In 2009 Steve obtained his master's degree in conservation biology from Antioch University New England. His graduate research investigated the implications of maple sugarbush management for Neotropical migrant songbirds. When not in the woods on business Steve can still be found there - hiking, mountain biking, backcountry skiing, exploring with his kids, or whatever else seems like fun. Steve, his wife Dana, and children Grady & Willa live on an 1850's farm in Waterbury Center, VT.
