Calling all Friends to help with a little spring housecleaning. That’s Birdhouse cleaning, to be exact! Birds benefit from a little human help with removal of old nest material from the 250+ nest boxes placed around the marsh. Meet at HQ at 9:00am Saturday, Feb. 24.
Come dressed for the weather – IT WILL BE COLD! If there is any wind, IT WILL BE REALLY COLD. Water-proof shoes or boots are a plus. If you have a cordless drill or screw driver, please bring it, and a phillips head bit, for opening the boxes. Also helpful is a putty knife for removing old nest material. Route assignments and maps will be handed out at HQ. We will provide dust masks for those who wish to use them.
