The Amazing Conservation Success Story of Eastern Bluebirds

April 16 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Did you know the population of Eastern Bluebirds dramatically declined from the 1930s to 1980s, but humans across the country helped them stage an incredible comeback. Join us for this program presented by the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center.

Come hear the story of the beautiful Eastern Bluebird and their remarkable recovery over the last 30-50 years.

Part of the success is due to the work of citizen scientists building, installing and monitoring bluebird boxes. An if you’re inspired to help bluebirds in this way after this talk, you’re welcome to join our Bluebird project sponsored by the Lyme Land Trust! We will have a follow-up workshop to build birdhouses. Our bluebird volunteers will make at lest 2 birdhouses, one for preserve and one for their backyard. It’s free with all materials supplied. All you have to do is sign up to monitor and preserve your bird box(es). It’s a great activity for a solo meadow hike or to do with family and friends. We’ll teach you everything you to know to help support bluebird populations.
