A partnership with Audubon Vermont to restore native habitat for shrubland birds

When long-time dairy Nordic Farm changed hands in 2018, it also changed business models. The former dairy became a hub for innovative new ventures. Now part of the collective farm endeavor, Earthkeep Farmcommon, the farm is home to multiple farm businesses that together produce grain, produce, hemp, berries, flowers, compost, livestock, and shrimp.

The farm is one of several working with us to restore native habitat in wetlands, along streams, and in dormant fields. Here, we are focused on restoring habitat for shrubland birds whose populations are in decline.

We are documenting this multi-year project, plus holding volunteer days, and educational events in partnership with Audubon Vermont. Please reach out to VLT ecologist Allaire Diamond to learn more or to volunteer.
