Audubon Vermont Receives Grant from Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative

The Golden-winged Warbler and other priority birds will benefit from grant money awarded to Audubon Vermont to create the Golden Chain Partnership among three Champlain Valley land trusts, the Vermont Land Trust, and Audubon Vermont’s Champlain Valley Bird Initiative. “The partnership will help build capacity and recognition for the vital conservation work of land trusts in this region,” says Audubon Vermont’s Mark LaBarr. The partnership will identify land parcels best suited to support shrubland and young forest bird species and prioritize these for land trust protection, guide management of previously protected properties and host landowner workshops, and create an outreach strategy to generate continued funding.
