Join the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor Partnership for a presentation by Steve Hagenbuch, Audubon Vermont's Forest Bird Conservation Biologist, on Conserving Vermont's Forest Birds. From warblers and thrushes to vireos and flycatchers, Vermont provides summer breeding habitat for some of the greatest diversity of neotropical migratory songbirds found anywhere in the lower 48 states. Many of these species are at risk due to loss of suitable habitat, forest fragmentation, introduced species, incompatible forest management, and climate change. Bird conservation in the 21st century requires a proactive, multi-disciplinary approach.

Over the past decade Audubon Vermont has been working closely with landowners, foresters, maple syrup producers, legislators, and others to raise awareness of the important role our state's forests play in hemispheric bird conservation. Steve will introduce a number of bird species of conservation priority and discuss how Audubon is working with others to help promote forest management that results in high-quality nesting habitat and addresses threats to their survival.
