The maple season may be over for this year, but sugarbushes play an important role year round. Join us for a tour at Buck Family Maple Farm to learn about the sugarbush's role as habitat for birds and other wildlife.
The tour will be led by Audubon Vermont senior conservation biologist and forester, Steve Hagenbuch, and John Buck of Buck Family Maple Farm. While touring parts of the Buck family sugarbush, Steve will introduce Audubon Vermont’s Bird-Friendly Maple program to attendees, and share what makes a sugarbush bird-friendly and how to manage a sugarbush in a bird-friendly way. We will also discuss the farm's organic certification through Vermont Organic Farmers/NOFA-VT.
The tour will include birding by sight and sound, so attendees are encouraged to bring binoculars if able. The walking tour will be on established woods trails and roads for about 1 mile with some mild to moderate uphill sections along the way. The event will take place rain or shine so attendees are encouraged to dress accordingly, including proper footwear. Attendees are also asked to leave pets at home.
