Once again we'll move the VBS training back a half hour to 1:30 p.m. on
Sunday, May 18 (instead of 1 p.m.). This session will be at Herrick's Cove
in Rockingham. It'll be a great opportunity to learn VBS sampling protocols
and to polish your field skills. We'll cover everything from forms to
photography, with particular emphasis on netting, photographing, and then
releasing butterflies. (By the way, Herrick's Cove is among the finest
birdwatching spots in Vermont.)
There's no need to sign up. These are quite informal. Just show up. Bring
along your maps, field forms, and other VBS field supplies, including your
GPS unit if you have one.
DIRECTIONS: For drivers southbound on Interstate 91, take Exit 6 and
proceed south on Route 103 for 0.3 mile. Turn north (left) on Route 5 and
continue 0.7 mile to a right turn onto Herrick's Cove Road. Northbound
drivers on Interstate 91 also take Exit 6 and, at the end of a long exit
ramp, turn left to pick up Route 5 north. After 0.5 mile go right to stay
on Route 5 and continue another 0.7 mile to a right turn on Herrick's Cove
Look for me in the parking area and boat launch. Pray for sun!
