While maple syrup can look and taste the same, it can come from forests that are managed in dramatically different ways. Park-like maple monocultures may appeal to our tidy aesthetic and increase sap production over the short-term, but they support relatively low numbers of birds and bird species. In contrast, biologically and structurally diverse sugarbushes offer great places for birds to forage, find cover, and raise their young. They are also likely to have better long-term sap production, fewer forest health problems, and be better able to adapt to the stresses of climate change. To learn more about bird-friendly forest management practices, enjoy a walk through Audubon Vermont’s bird-friendly sugarbush and participate in their fun and educational Sugarbush Scavenger Hunt. You can pick up a scavenger hunt at their trailhead kiosk near their sugarhouse or print one from - vt.audubon.org. Search for pictures of laminated birds throughout their sugarbush (some of them are not easy to find!) and learn what they need in a forest to successfully raise their young. Bring a pencil and a smile and try to unscramble the letters that you find near each bird to spell one our favorite words! Have fun!
