Spring 2021 Update



06 April 2021

Dear Members

The 126th Annual Meeting of the Vermont Botanical and Bird Club will be held on Thursday, June 3 through Sunday, June 6, 2021 at Castleton University in Castleton, Vermont.
The date of this year's meeting was brought forward one year from plans that were originally made for the 125th Annual Meeting in 2020. Due to the unexpected appearance of the Coronavirus pandemic in January, 2020, it became necessary to make this change. As many of you know, we were able to enjoy a re-scheduled 125th Annual Meeting on August 22, 2020 with a Botanical Foray at Pelot's Natural Area in North Hero followed by a Social Gathering, Picnic Supper and Evening Program at Camp Ingalls in North Hero, Vermont.
We look forward to holding our meeting in 2021 in the west-central region of Vermont. We were last in the area (and stayed at then named Castleton State College) in 2011. Members who attended that meeting will remember that year as a high water year for Lake Champlain. The water level was so high that we were prevented from driving down the Poultney River Road to Bald Mountain and Buckner Preserve, as the road was under 4' of water. We hope that the Lake will be better behaved this year and look forward to visiting this special place; we also look forward to West Rutland Marsh for birding and to other great places. We will stay at Hoff Hall on campus.
We will be asking that people be prepared to follow the Covid-19 guidelines that are established by the Vermont Health Department including maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask.
Best wishes and good health, the Club Officers; Debbie, Everett, Connie, Susan, Charlotte, Scott.
