You know that birds are important to me. The valuable work that the Vermont Center for Ecostudies does is important too. I have appreciated all that they stand for and all that they do and have been participating in their "Birdathon" for years to show that appreciation. This year is no different. This year I hope to raise even more money in the name of conservation, birds, and the protection of the outdoor world that makes us all whole. I will again spend an entire day in the month of May identifying as many Vermont bird species as I can. Last year I found 52 species. I'm feeling pretty confident that I can beat last year's record. Please consider encouraging me by supporting me and the work of the VCE. Please consider being generous. The VCE will thank you, I will thank you, and the birds will continue to thank you with their glorious song. Thanks!
