Migrations of all kinds, across borders, between cities and over flyways, create a common thread that connects birds to humans. Through the Migration Stories program, Green Mountain Audubon Center will strengthen this connection by documenting the migration stories of people and birds that live in our community. Stories of human migration, as told by recent immigrants enrolled in the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, and bird migration stories, as told by middle-school students, will be recorded and published as podcasts. Side by side, these stories help create an understanding of conservation that extends beyond our local communities and ecosystems. To solidify the connection between migrations of all kinds, program participants will have the opportunity to work together to restore priority bird habitat. By engaging with Vermont's new immigrants, Green Mountain Audubon Center will widen the conservation community and help ensure that migration stories such as these are told for years to come. This project is being led by Daniel Schmidt.
