Since our inception we have responded to the needs of local social service and conservation organizations. Some we partner with regularly, providing food, clothing and holiday gifts for the families of The Upper Valley Haven and LISTEN, recycling cell phones with WISE to help women and children surviving domestic or sexual violence, and doing renovation and weatherizing projects with COVER. We also help organizations with special projects, such as helping the Vermont Chapter of the Nature Conservancy rid a specific watershed area of non-native, invasive plant species.
Audubon Vermont was founded at the start of the last century – one of America’s earliest organizations dedicated to conservation of birds, other wildlife and essential habitat. Audubon has had a grassroots presence in Vermont since the founding of “The Audubon Society of Vermont” in 1901, and has grown to over 4,000 members with 8 volunteer chapters throughout the state.
