Stuck in Vermont - Black Birders Week

Debbie Archer is the coordinator of the education program at Audubon Vermont, and she has been birding for a decade. Eva met Debbie at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington to go on an early morning bird walk. They encountered a veery and a yellow-bellied sapsucker and talked about the experience of #BirdingWhileBlack. Eva also spoke via Zoom to Tykee James, one of the co-organizers of the event who is also a birder, a podcast host and a coordinator of government affairs for the National Audubon Society. Tykee spoke about the connection between racial justice and environmental progress and the importance of visibility, representation and hiring people of color in the fields of natural sciences.
