The Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas collects and disseminates data needed to make informed recommendations regarding the state status, state rank, and conservation of Vermont’s reptiles and amphibians. With the help of volunteers, collaborations with conservation organizations, and staff members, we collect information and broaden our knowledge base regarding the natural history, distribution, and effective conservation of Vermont’s reptiles and amphibians. The Atlas is an independent program, working in partnership with Vermont Family Forests and many other organizations and individuals; funding comes from grants and contributions, and we rely on individual donations to support our work.
The Vermont Reptile & Amphibian Atlas is thrilled to host Patti Casey and Colin McCaffrey for a fundraising concert to benefit the Atlas. The concert will be at the Salisbury Congregational Church (853 Maple St., Salisbury, VT) on Saturday, October 29, 2022, 7-9 PM. We encourage advanced online ticket sales for $22 ($23.32 after sales tax); price at the door will increase to $25 ($26.50 with tax), cash only.
Patti Casey and Colin McCaffrey are two of Vermont’s most treasured musicians. They have worked together and individually to create beautiful vocal harmonies and acoustic instrumental work. Both are internationally known and award-winning songwriters and singers, and are native Vermonters.
Through five majestic, award-winning albums, Patti has pioneered the creation of a unique New England genre of folk-storytelling-bluegrass whose signature sound has since been imitated yet remains unmatched. She has performed at such elite levels of artistry for so many decades – songwriting, musicianship, performance, and social advocacy – that words like “acclaimed,” “magical,” and “transformative” only begin to capture the scope and reach of her talents.
Colin McCaffrey is a native Vermonter, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer who has worked on hundreds of regional recordings and live productions. Lending his smooth voice and string wizardry to the best music coming out of these hills, Colin McCaffrey is what the Burlington Free Press calls "A Green Mountain treasure worth unearthing."
The Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas gathers and disseminates data on the reptiles and amphibians of Vermont in a way that involves and informs Vermont individuals and organizations so that they can become more informed and effective stewards of wildlife habitat. Jim Andrews, Kate Kelly, and Matt Gorton will all be at the concert - come meet Team Herp and chat with us! We look forward to seeing you on October 1!
