We're not the only ones who revel in Vermont’s summers:  Our woods and fields are teeming with insects.  Insects are the most plentiful members of the animal world and bees, butterflies, beetles, moths, dragonflies and other species play a critical role in our ecosystem. Entomologist Bryan Pfeiffer discusses the life and times of Vermont's insects.

And we continue our series featuring music from "Thrufters & Througstones" with examples of Franco-American and Abenaki music. The CD is a collaboration between Big Heavy World's Vermont Music Library, the Vermont Folklife Center and features regional music from the past 400 years.
