Sunday, November 1

Connecting your yard with surrounding landscapes creates vital flight corridors for native and migratory birds, including bluebirds. Ornithologist Ian Stewart, using ArcGIS technology, demonstrates how your garden contributes to a larger ecosystem and supports bluebird populations. Learn the role of nest boxes in bluebird reproduction, identify where to place one in your yard, and leave with instructions on how to properly install and look after it. You’ll soon see that your yard becomes a new home for gorgeous bluebirds!
