Nest Boxes: Creating a Bird Friendly Yard
Thursday, March 25, 7:00 PM
How can you make your property more appealing to the area’s flying residents? Nest boxes are a great way to promote bird and bat species, but it’s important to know which boxes you want and where to hang them. Debra Marnich from the Natural Resources Conservation Service will discuss how to determine the bird and bat species in your area and what type of nesting boxes they utilize.
Deb will focus on the use of nesting boxes for supporting local wildlife. Specifically, she will cover nesting habitats and natural cavities, box design for specific species, types of boxes, placement and installation of boxes, and maintenance of boxes. Join us to see how you can enhance your yard and make it more attractive to our flying and feathered friends. The Carroll County Conservation District will be selling bird boxes this year and Matt Coughlan, district manager, will be on hand to tell what type of boxes are available and when and how to order them.
