CANCELED - Bird Box Volunteer Work Day and Training

CANCELED - Amid concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19, all public programs, events, and trainings in state parks and forests are canceled through April 30. 
Except for the parks and forests that have been announced as closed, state park and forest facilities remain open.

Are you interested in helping or learning more about birds? Become a Bird Box Volunteer at Kings Gap by attending this training! Volunteers regularly check and record activity at assigned boxes during the nesting season. As a bird box volunteer, you will be part of the PA State Park Cavity Nesting Program, whose aim is to provide habitat for declining cavity-nesting populations, like bluebirds.


Volunteers record information on eggs, young, nest building, and more. Data sheets and guidance provided.


Meet at at the education building. For more info or to sign up, contact Kim Schubert at ra-nrspkingees@pa.gov or 717-486-3799.
