Can you pass the maple syrup, please? Support a bird conservation initiative which integrates sustainable forest management practices with Vermont's rapidly growing maple industry! By choosing delicious, pure Vermont maple syrup produced in bird-friendly habitats, you are bolstering the efforts of many maple producers committed to improving our working lands by managing their maple forests (called sugarbushes by those in the know) for bird-friendly characteristics. Purchase from one of the participating producers below.
For a list of all participating producers, click here.
Audubon Vermont is committed to promoting biodiversity in sugarbushes so the birds you love - Scarlet Tanagers, Wood Thrushes, and Black-Throated Blue Warblers, just to name a few - can continue to forage, find cover, and raise their young. The program builds on the national award-winning Foresters for the Birds project and is a partnership between Audubon Vermont biologists, the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, & Recreation, and the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association. Please feel free to contact Audubon Conservation Biologist Steve Hagenbuch for more information.
