Nest Box Volunteer Training

Become a nest box monitor and be a part of a successful nesting program with 123,000 birds fledged statewide!

The number of natural cavities, for 35 species of breeding birds in Pennsylvania, is declining due to landscape changes and competition from other birds.  Nest boxes have been proven to be an effective way people can provide sites for cavity-nesters. 

Volunteers are needed to assist with cleaning and monitoring boxes from March to July (or when nesting season ends.)  There is no set schedule.  It is what would fit into your schedule.

Chapman State Park will be holding a training to learn about cavity- nesting birds, how to clean and monitor the boxes.

When: Saturday, March 31, 2018,  10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Meet: Environmental Learning Center, Chapman State Park

This is a great opportunity to identify and learn more about cavity-nesting birds, network with volunteers and park staff and aid in the fledging of several young birds.

Dress for the weather as we will be cleaning out boxes.  No registration required.
