Dear Vermont Birders,

I wanted to spread the word about an all day symposium on Thursday 
celebrating the legacy of the Endangered Species Act and Vermont's 
experience protecting our most vulnerable species.  Apologies for being 
late in sending out a note.

The symposium is next Thursday, the 23rd, from 8:30 to 4:30 at the ECHO 
Center.

Keynote speakers include Joe Roman, Author and Hardy Fellow in 
Conservation Biology, Harvard University and Collin O’Mara, President 
and CEO, National Wildlife Federation—and panels of experts will examine 
the future for conservation biology and discuss the challenges ahead for 
preserving Vermont's natural heritage. Other panelists biologists from 
Vermont Fish and Wildlife, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service as well 
as a number of NGOs.

Perhaps of interest to us in Vermont is Chad Wilsey, who worked on the 
models for Audubon's new climate change assessment.

More details about the conference can be found here:

Registration is $15, which includes lunch from Sugar Snap.

Additionally, that evening, the Vermont Natural Resources Council will 
be holding their Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival at Main Street Landing.

I hope you can attend what will be an interesting and provocative event.

Allan
