Nest Box Project for Bluebirds and Swallows
March 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This year’s Nest Box Training volunteer training session will be held on Saturday, March 23rd from 10:00-noon at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) office at 7405 US 50 in Salida. GARNA partners with CPW to monitor Bluebird nest boxes on State Parks and Wildlife lands throughout Chaffee County. The boxes are primarily used by Mountain Bluebirds and Tree or Violet-green Swallows. The recorded information is then entered onto the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website for their NestWatch Program. Boxes are monitored once a week from late April through early August and volunteers are partnered to share responsibilities. Please think about making the commitment for this year. It is fascinating to observe the nest from first egg laid to last hatchling fledged. Mark the date: Saturday, March 23rd, 10:00am till noon at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife office, 7405 US-50, Salida. For more information, please call 301-938-2883 or 505-270-6523.
Many GARNA programs require a liability release form be filled out each calendar year.
