Wright Park considered for bird protection project
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Area Land Trust Executive Carl Robinson told the Middlebury selectboard Tuesday about a proposal for a habitat management project to help sustain some dwindling “state and regional priority bird species” at Wright Park.
Robinson cited the golden-winged warbler as an example of the species that the project would help protect at the park.
MALT, Middlebury College and Audubon Vermont would undertake the project, with potential funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Work would include clearing some invasive plant species, shrub land and some trees.
The selectboard gave its OK, with the caveat that they and the town’s lawyer have a chance to review the specific work that would be done in what is a public park.
