Description

Calling all bird enthusiasts! Did you know that we have over 40 actively-monitored bluebird boxes? 

Come to our bluebird “lunch and learn” in Conference Room A at the Research Triangle Park Headquarters.  Lunch will be provided.

This meeting is for anyone who would like to adopt a box in RTP or who is looking to learn more about bluebirds and other wildlife in the park.

The Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina and its Owners & Tenants through the environment @rtp program is committed to developing the Park in a way that also recognizes and respects the existing ecosystem and natural features that make this region so sought-after. Consulting with specialists on animal habitats and migration patterns, the Foundation has installed a variety of structures to celebrate the Park’s native wildlife, which includes more than 100 species of birds and a variety of turtles.

At the meeting we will:

  • Discuss blue bird nest box care and monitoring procedures
  • Provide a list of all available boxes in RTP and give everyone an opportunity to sign up to monitor the boxes
  • Discuss other wildlife opportunities in RTP including, but not limited to, adopting Wood duck boxes, lunch and learn Nature Hikes, participating in Fisheries Surveys and more!

Participants will also have an opportunity to go outside and look at one of the bluebird boxes for a demonstration on how to monitor them correctly.
