On May 21 the VCE staff will watch birds with even greater purpose and determination than usual: Birdathon. In our annual 24-hour birding blitz, we’ll be raising funds to support VCE’s wildlife and habitat conservation projects. You can join hundreds of supporters who sponsor our Birdathon team with a donation each year. Our team, the “Green Mountain Goatsuckers,” will run its low-carbon Birdathon route by foot and by boat along the Connecticut River. When we’re done (and dead tired) we expect to have identified more than 100 bird species. To support the VCE team or to form your own Birdathon team, visit Birdathon Central on the VCE web site.
