From birds to butterflies and everything in between, your biodiversity sightings can make a difference. Join our growing community of citizen naturalists from around the Green Mountain State in discovering and sharing observations of Vermont life.
What lives here? Where is it? What's common? What's at risk? What will be? As human activity profoundly alters the map of life on local and global scales, our response requires knowledge of plant and animal distributions across vast landscapes and over long periods of time. Your observations can be turned into research-grade, citizen science data that will help us discover, track and ultimately conserve our natural heritage.
A real-time, online checklist program, since 2003 Vermont eBird has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds.
A real-time, online checklist program for butterfly watchers, eButterfly is providing a new way to report, organize and access information about butterflies in Vermont and beyond.
Vermont Atlas of Life on iNaturalist
Vermonters marvel at the life around us all the time. What if all those observations were shared online, creating a living record of biodiversity in Vermont that could be used to monitor changes and learn more about nature? That's the vision behind this project.
Odonata Central is place where you can keep track of all your dragonfly and damselfly observations, photos and specimens and manage all your personal lists, all while contributing to the Vermont Odonate Atlas.
