Covid-19 Update

Dear Members

We regret to say that the 125th Annual Meeting of the Vermont Botanical and Bird Club will not occur June 4-7, at Castleton University due to Covid-19 and social restrictions.
We are planning on having an abbreviated 125th meeting sometime later in the Summer possibly during the weekend of August 22, 2020 with the Hardy Plant Club; Aaron Marcus is scheduled to lead a botanical foray at North Hero Pelot's Natural Area then. Arthur Gilman is also planning on joining us. We will post a message to this website ( in Early June when we know more; and we will let each of you know by email when those plans have taken shape
Best wishes and good health, the Club Officers; Debbie, Everett, Connie, Susan, Charlotte, Scott.
P.S. We have moved our reservation with Castleton University to June 3-6, 2021 for the 126th Annual Meeting.


Meeting in 2019 At Quechee KOA (PH)


The Vermont Botanical and Bird Club is looking forward to holding its 126th Annual Meeting at Castleton University in Castleton, Vermont on Thursday, June 3 - Sunday, June 6, 2021.

We were last in this area in 2011 (and stayed at the then named Castleton State College). That was the year that Lake Champlain was in full flood stage through the early Summer. We were not able to drive down the Poultney River Road to go to Buckner Preserve and Bald Mountain because the road was under 4' of water. We are hoping that the Lake is better behaved this year and we can visit those places and others for birding and botanizing in the Rutland/Castleton/Fair Haven region. Details will soon follow with the Winter Newsletter in early-mid February..


Information about the next meeting and details about registration will be available a few months before the meeting. Click here to view our scholarship page.
