Bluebird Trail at Chinn Park Needs Volunteer Monitors

You can help the Bluebirds and have a great time too! We need volunteers to help monitor the Bluebird Trails at Chinn Park and Merrimac Farm.

Chinn Park Volunteer Training – Trail Leader Amy Wilson
When: Sunday, April 3 at 4:00 pm.
Where: We’ll meet at the back of the parking lot at Chinn Park Library, 13065 Chinn Park Drive, Woodbridge 22192

Bluebirds are a dramatic environmental success story. In the 1960’s habitat losses, pesticides (including DDT) and competition from introduced species resulted in dramatically decreased populations of Bluebirds. A few folks who remembered the Bluebirds took direct action and provided nest boxes. The word spread… lots of people began to put out nest boxes and brought Bluebirds back to our region and beyond.

Responsibilities include working with other volunteers to check the nesting boxes each week and gather data about what’s happening at each box. We hope you can help with this important project.
