Hello Emily!

Introducing Audubon Vermont's newest educator, Emily Calder

Audubon Vermont is extending a warm welcome to our newest team member, Emily Calder! Emily is joining the education team with a background in environmental education and experience in our local schools as well. We are excited to have her skills on our team and the passion she brings for outdoor learning is apparent. Take a look at her bio below and when you see her on the trails or your fieldtrip, please say hello!

Emily Calder

Emily grew up playing in the woods and mountains of New Hampshire with her family. This interest in the outdoors grew through her participation in backpacking camps in high school. Emily discovered her love for outdoor education while working at a summer camp in Rhode Island. She earned her B.S. in Environmental Science from Saint Michael’s College in 2019. After graduation, Emily spent two years living in the White Mountains while working as an environmental educator. She gained additional education experience as a paraeducator with the Burlington School District. Emily is excited to get back outside as an educator with Audubon and cannot wait to teach in and explore the nature here this year. Emily lives in Burlington and enjoys birding, rock climbing, hiking, and playing board games. 

Emily's top 3 favorite (because who can pick just one?!) birds are:

  • White-throated Sparrow
  • Winter Wren
  • Golden-crowned Kinglet
