Vermont Adult Learning (VAL) provides adults 16 years and older with necessary skills to successfully transition to employment and post-secondary education. This spring, Audubon Vermont is collaborating with VAL and host a six-week program for these students, All About Birds. This program will allow these adults the opportunity to have hands-on outdoor experiences with science, conservation, and participate in a community science project that will benefit the community. This program will be focused in the urban setting of Burlington, but also experience bird at two Important Bird Areas Green Mountain Audubon Center and Dead Creek for field trips.
Vermont Fish and Wildlife
The Dead Creek visitor Center in Addison, VT is a new education resource featuring displays highlighting the history of Dead Creek and conservation, fish, wildlife management, conservation partnerships, habitat and more. The Dead Creek Visitor center hosts K-12 school groups year round. However, one of the largest barriers for school group participation is transportation costs. This grant sought to provide access and scholarships to schools that do not have the financial means to cover the bussing costs to Dead Creek.
