Hey there, I'm Bridget Butler. I've been a naturalist for more than 20 years, playing match maker for the wildscape & the wonderful people who call Vermont their home.

MY Mission

My mission is to tap into each person's innate passion for nature through exploration and deep listening. I strive then to encourage folks to take that passion and turn it into action, paying it forward for the landscape they love & enjoy.

Go out birding with Butler for an afternoon, and it’s easy to see how she’s turned her passion into something marketable. With apologies to Fleetwood Mac, Butler makes birding fun. Like, the kind of fun you didn’t think you’d have traipsing through the woods listening for cheeps and chirps.
