The Bobolink Project is a brand-new way to connect your environmental values with the farmers who can help. This program uses community contributions to pay farmers for altered farming practices that better provide the environmental services (like bird habitat) you value. The bobolink--a migratory, ground-nesting songbird--serves as our flagship, a visible symbol of the benefits that come from pairing community members with farmers to sustain our wildlife, environment, and rural heritage.
This non-profit research program is a joint venture from the Universities of Connecticut and Vermont, and we are pleased to have you visit our site. Please feel free to look around the website to learn more about the Bobolink, the goals of the Bobolink Project, and how this new program works to better protect native wildlife and local farmers.
