Sponsor a Bluebird Nest Box

SPONSOR A BLUEBIRD NEST BOX

The purpose of this project is to raise funds to assist the Five Rivers staff and Community Science volunteers in better monitoring and maintaining the integrity of our bluebird population.

Consider making a $35 annual contribution to support the Five Rivers Bluebird Nest Box Monitoring Program. As part of the program, volunteers construct, maintain, and monitor nest boxes, which provide critical habitat for cavity nesting birds like bluebirds. Your name will be acknowledged below and you will receive a certificate acknowledging your sponsorship, as well as a mid and end-season update.

If you sign up online, you will receive an auto-renewal notice if you wish to maintain your support annually.  Or, you may download this form and send it with your payment.  Also, sponsorship may be given as a gift to a friend or family-member.

YOUR BLUEBIRD NEST BOX SPONSORSHIP WILL HELP WITH…

  • Materials for replacement boxes (i.e. lumber, hardware, metal poles for mounting, etc.).  The boxes have an average lifespan of seven years because the wood cannot be treated.  Currently, there are approximately 50 boxes on the Five Rivers property, and each year, boxes need to be replaced.
  • Baffles to keep snakes and other predators out, while allowing bluebirds in/out.  Currently, there are no baffles and some of the nests have been raided by predators in the past.
  • Monitoring supplies, such as new backpacks or shoulder bags, for volunteers to carry through the waist high grass to access the bluebird nest boxes.

YES! I’M READY TO SPONSOR A BLUEBIRD NEST BOX!
