Share Community Farming & Grassland Birds: A Local Conservation Strategy

Event Details

Come hear the stories of individual grassland birds and their young and be inspired as Vermont landowners and communities to halt the declining populations of these birds in the northeastern United States. Many Bobolinks and other birds born in and around Shelburne Farms return to breed within 1500m of where they were born – generation to generation. This allows us to uniquely tell the stories of bird families: where each was born, who its parents, siblings, and cousins were, where it migrated, where it returned, and its breeding success. Discuss how the timing and intensity of haying and grazing affect these birds, and how management opportunities among Vermont's farming and landowner community can balance bird and farmer needs.
