About Alison Vilag

I’m Alison Vilag. There’s a good chance that I showed you your first Kirtland’s Warbler in Michigan’s jack pine barrens, drove you around Priblovian Alaska in a derelict 12-passenger van, or that we’ve hunkered down together on the lee side of Whitefish Point Bird Observatory’s waterbird shack during peak migration. Perhaps, you have enjoyed my contributions to Jack Pine Warbler and other publications, my social media posts, or the online and in-person presentations I create for bird clubs. I’m equally passionate about birds and their stories–and I’m driven to share those stories with you. I have a B.A. in environmental writing and media, and my most recent position was as Whitefish Point’s Outreach Coordinator.

The regular appreciation for my voice and the content I produce has compelled me to create more, and to create more consistently. For some time now, I've had an idea I can't shake: to devote the better part of  year to traveling the U.S., winnowing out the most poignant stories of birds, their conservation, and their stakeholders, and piecing these into a book. Many political and pandemic implications that undoubtedly will persist in to 2021 are confounding to birds and humans alike; the lens presented for such a project is too powerful for me to pass up. 

 As my patron you will have access to regular, evocative narrative about the interactions between and amongst birds, their habitats, their conservation, birders, and other land-users. And through this, you will be assisting with the tanks of gas, the bags of rice, and the entry fees that fuel the creation of these stories.
