The board has asked participants in the Vermont Gas Systems hearings for comment by March 31.

Honey flavors result from bees' changing landscape

Posted on April 4, 2016 |

The Outside Story Bees and honey.jpg

As spring approaches, the sun is climbing higher each day and I know that it won’t be long until my honeybees are out seeking nectar and pollen.

From milkweed in the abandoned field. From the coneflowers, thyme and sage in our perennial garden. From asters and goldenrod; jewelweed and Japanese knotweed. For a bee, the warmer seasons are a Mardi Gras parade of nectars.

Now is the time to take down bird feeders

Posted on March 24, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says warm spring weather and melting snows are causing bears to come out of their winter dens early in search of a meal. The department recommends taking down bird feeders now to avoid attracting them.
