The largest body of water in Central Vermont, Waterbury Reservoir provides great opportunities to spot migrating songbirds like Scarlet Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Canada Warbler, as well as residents such as American Bittern, Common Loon, and Bald Eagle.

We will paddle from Waterbury Center State Park, and spend the morning exploring the coves and bay in search of waterfowl, wading birds, and woodland denizens.

This event is open the public, with advanced ... "early bird" ... and discounted ticketting offered to paid MadBirders members.
Friends of Waterbury Reservoir is a Vermont-registered 501(C)3 non-profit organization committed to protecting and enhancing the ecological, recreational, historical, and community values of the Waterbury Reservoir.

We accomplish this through:
• Reservoir stewardship
• Research and community involvement
• Collaboration with all stakeholders
• Connecting people and place

The Waterbury Reservoir is a thoughtfully-maintained, safe, and clean public-access recreation area located at the crossroads of world-class resort towns and yet offers a remote experience for users. The Waterbury Reservoir is recognized as a unique resource and an important conservation and economic asset for the people of the state of Vermont.

We believe it is essential to:
• Strengthen relationships with stakeholders including neighbors, businesses, governments and other organizations and extend our role as convener and supporter;
• Build a community of water- and land-based Reservoir users; and
• Support stewardship and conservation of the natural world on and around the Reservoir.

We believe it is important to:
• Provide access, and promote responsible recreation as a means to engage people directly and pass on timeless values;
• Honor the history of the communities that existed on the Reservoir and their contribution to the area;
• Collaborate with other organizations in accomplishing shared goals; and
• Use outdoor recreation as a vehicle to help youth engage with and learn about the natural world.
