EVENT: VCE Birdathon 2014
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2014
Our VCE staff team, the Green Mountain Goatsuckers, will maintain its commitment to a low-carbon Birdathon this spring, reverting to our 2010 route of foot and boat travel along the Connecticut River, hoping for conditions that favor a big fall-out of migrant birds. We’re still refining our route, but hiking and paddling will be our primary modes of locomotion. We’ll start at dawn by hiking a small mountain in the Bradford area, checking Lake Morey, then shifting venue to a flotilla of canoes and kayaks. We’ll paddle our way down to Norwich or Wilder, stopping often to check the river’s varied habitats. We hope to identify 100+ birds, with luck and good weather.
