Green Mountain Meadowlarks: Ecology and Conservation of an Imperiled Grassland Bird

April 15 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Thursday April 15 | 6 – 7 pm
Free | Join via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87211027848
Presented by: Vermont Center for Ecostudies
Hosted by: North Branch Nature Center and Green Mountain Audubon Society


Eastern Meadowlarks in the Northeast are rapidly declining; based on the latest USGS Breeding Bird Survey results, they’re undergoing an estimated 8.7% annual decline in Vermont. With their recent designation of Threatened in New Hampshire, and imminent listing in Vermont, now is a golden opportunity for targeted survey efforts. The Vermont Center for Ecostudies is partnering up with New Hampshire Audubon to launch a bi-state “blitz” this spring to encourage birders and community scientists to target areas of grassland habitat with the goal of seeking out meadowlarks. Join us to learn about these imperiled songbirds and what you can do to help keep them on the Vermont landscape.
