Help the Vermont Land Trust Monitor the Impacts of their Habitat Improvement Project

The Vermont Land Trust acquired a property in West Brattleboro that is open to the public for birding. The McCulloch property is located on Meadowbrook Rd. From the intersection of I-91 and Hwy 9 take Route 9 West past the old 7/11. Turn right on Meadowbrook. The driveway is on the right immediately after you cross the brook. Be sure to pull all the way to the end of the driveway so as not to block the neighbors driveway.

VLT has secured grant funding to make some habitat improvements for wildlife at this property. They are interested in monitoring what birds are using the space before, during and after the work is completed. If you are an eBird user you can report your sightings there - the McCulloch Property is an eBird hotspot. Otherwise, you can email your trip lists to Cory Ross at
