"Countless Vermonters have discovered birds and butterflies, orchids and otters, relaxation and contemplation at this place by the river. And now, with a vision to connect even more of us to wildlife and wild places, North Branch Nature Center will move from greatness to virtuosity — not only here in Montpelier but far beyond as well.”

— Brian Pfeiffer, writer, naturalist, and educator

Adopt an Owl

Support Community Science at NBNC with a fun and unique gift for friends and family. Our owl research program is an extraordinary opportunity to connect with charismatic wildlife while discovering new information about avian ecology. This research requires specialized equipment and intensive data analysis that would not be possible without your support. Adopt an Owl here.

So I tell you this not to scare you,
But to prepare you, to dare you
To dream a different reality,

Where despite disparities
We all care to protect this world,
This riddled blue marble, this little true marvel
To muster the verve and the nerve
To see how we can serve
Our planet.

— Amanda Gorman, US Inaugural Poet, Earthrise
