Vermont Prepares For Loon Count

This weekend’s loon census is expected to show that about 200 adult loons live on Vermont’s lakes and ponds. Because they nest just a few inches above the waterline, the spring flooding meant that many birds couldn’t use their sites as early as usual this year.

Why We Love Our Toys (And Games)

Shelburne Museum Senior Curator Jean Burks looks back at toys, dolls and games, some that were manufactured in Vermont. Also, with the first round of data from the 2010 census just released, we look at what Vermont’s results tell us. Plus we hear from an Enosburg Falls trio called Farm.

Vermont’s Shifting Population

Close to 500 people moved to Vermont last year, and most of them chose to live in Chittenden County. Meanwhile, counties in southern Vermont saw declines in population. We take a look at the numbers with Will Sawyer, from the State Data Center, and we examine the economic impacts with Jim Matteau, in Brattleboro. Also, we talk to Vermont’s Deputy Commissioner of Banking, Tom Candon, about the recent security breach at Hannaford stores.  And, we visit master flutemaker Jonathon Landell in Richmond.
