On March 24,  at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury, Dr. Allan Strong, associate dean of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources of the University of Vermont, provided an illustrated overview of The Bobolink Project. Faced with a rapidly and persistently declining Bobolink population and increasingly intensive management of Vermont’s grasslands, Allan Strong helped put together a novel strategy for raising community funds to support healthy Bobolink habitat in Vermont. If you missed this presentation you can view it online thanks to the production facilities of Middlebury Community Television.

This was the last of our Cabin Fever lectures for this year, but will be back again next year with another three presentations to help you get through the winter.  In the meantime, if you would like to see more, many of our past presentations can be found at this link.
