"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.
