Join the members of the GMAS to hear Mark LaBarr, Audubon Vermont’s Conservation Program Manager as he recounts his travels to Hawai’i volunteering for the Kaua’i Forest Bird Recovery Project. Hear how some of the last endemic birds in Hawaii are struggling to survive in the high elevations of Kaua’i’s Alakai Swamp. Mark will talk about the project's efforts to protect and preserve the birds and their habitat and provide some stories of a Vermonter entranced by Hawai’i.
