From birds to butterflies and everything in between, join one of our biodiversity missions. Naturalists of all ages and abilities from around the Green Mountain State are helping us monitor Vermont life.
Vermonters have long upheld a tradition of documenting biodiversity. The VAL missions are projects that are short in duration and easy for just about anyone to join and contribute observations for science and conservation. Pick one, or several, and join the community!
West Virginia White Watch
Spring is changing. The snow is melting earlier, wildflowers are blooming sooner, and trees are leafing out faster. How are West Virginia White butterflies faring? Help us find out!
Vermont Mission Monarch Blitz
The annual International Monarch Monitoring Blitz (23-31 July 2021) aims to capture a snapshot of the state of monarch populations breeding in Vermont and beyond. It is easy and fun for all ages!
