In the words of Audubon Vermont's Executive Director David Mears, “We try to be a bridge between different communities, We want to include young, old, bird watchers, kayakers, hunters, anglers, and all people regardless of gender, race, and orientation. We want to focus together on protecting the environment.”

The online edition of Best of Burlington Magazine features an additional "online extra" article: Attract Birds To Your Yard: Suggestions For Specific Plants And Trees To Add To Your Landscape.  The article includes a link to Audubon's Plants for Birds Native Plant Database. There's also a listing of our upcoming spring events.
