"Steve Hagenbuch began working with Audubon Vermont soon after moving to Vermont in 1998, and he’s remained with the organization for 23 years and counting.

With his wife, Dana Hudson, and children Grady and Willa, Steve manages the family’s Sweet Bird Farm on 9 acres in Waterbury Center, and the sugaring operation on a 76-acre woodlot in nearby Moretown." - Northern Woodlands Magazine
