Vermont Center for Ecostudies

Posted by

Join the Vermont Center for Ecostudies for Biothon 2019! Our biologists will span the state leading teams of pledge-fueled volunteers (like you!) on varying quests to find and record all the species we can. Together, we'll learn a lot - and perhaps even make an unexpected discovery or two. We'll also collect research-grade data for the Vermont Atlas of Life and submit checklists to eBird that will be made available to the world, raise money for VCE's wildlife conservation work, and have a lot of fun along the way!

In Rupert, you can join The Enumerating Eukaryotes team:
Appreciate the under-appreciated with Jason Hill at Merck Forest & Farmland Center [Limit: 20]
7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Merck Conservation Manager (birding guru, and former VCE Seasonal Biologist) Tim Duclos will accompany us. We’ll bird early morning and spend the rest of the day finding and photographing fungi, butterflies, flowers, beetles, and whatever else crawls, drifts, or swims by us. Come for part or all of the day, and meet up for casual dinner and drinks in Manchester around 5 p.m.
