The Bobolink Project

Here’s the info Carol Sweeney Benson sent to Dee Deferranti Abrahamse (because she lives in VT briefly every year) about the Bobolink Project.   It’s something she is committed to and reminds us all that the pledge deadline is April 21st.   Be sure to check out the history.
Update 5/10/14

Carol Benson sends “the highlights of the results of the 2014 Bobolink Project.  And, of course, it is not just the little Bobolinks that are protected.  Other animals, birds, and plants are helped.  And, bees because they eat the pollen from the blooming part of the plant cycle”

We have been very successful this year… ,we are able to cover at least 340 acres in Vermont this year (2014).  Of course, covering this acreage depends critically on everyone paying his or her pledges quickly.  We really need you to do so as soon as possible, and by May 20 would be best.  This assures us of getting all the farm contract commitments settled.

Finally … we will cover 340 acres this year, there is some chance some farms will contribute additional acres voluntarily.  This did happen last year.  We will be updating FaceBook if something significant happens …  Future fundraising will depend more heavily on “word of mouth,” so that we hope you’ll keep the Bobolink Project in mind for future years and discuss it with your friends.
