    Can real organic farming be saved? Join the Real Organic Project for their second annual Symposium at Dartmouth College this April 3 & 4 for two days of Ted-style talks from 25+ speakers that address this very question!

Keynote speakers include climate author Paul Hawken, farmer Eliot Coleman, and NASA scientist David Grinspoon.

    Woodcock Watch

    North Branch Nature Center
    713 Elm Street Montpelier, VT

    It’s spring and love is in the air! We will listen and watch for the mesmerizing courtship flight of the American Woodcock (a.k.a. Timberdoodle), which nests along the North Branch of the Winooski near our nature center. With luck, we may also be serenaded by Wilson’s Snipe and a chorus of Spring Peepers. This springtime spectacle has awed nature lovers across the northeast for centuries.
