Details

**This is a primarily a socially distant event. We will be meeting outside of the interpretive center and not really have to be within each others space. Please wear your masks and stay 6 feet apart from everyone and we can proceed with the training with that in mind.**

Melissa Guimont will explain what kinds of birds use our boxes in the forest and talk about the different nests they make. We will discuss identification features and we will offer information for people to use when checking on their own boxes at home or helping us in the forest with our bird boxes. We will train volunteers to monitor the native bird nesting boxes in MSSF if they choose to help. Meet at the MSSF Headquarters Parking Lot at the “Interpretive Center” at 10:00. Please bring binoculars and a Phillip’s head screwdriver. The training will last ~ 2 hours. If there is rain, we will reschedule it for Sunday, April 11th at 12:00 pm. We will send an email out to all those who sign up for rescheduling if the weather doesn’t cooperate. We will be looking in the bird boxes and setting up a schedule for volunteers to check these boxes once a week from May-August. Please attend if you have a bird box in your yard that you need to monitor also!
