Bluebirds, Citizen Science & You!

We are here for the long haul! JDCF was Live on Facebook recently with our 6th Facebook Live program.  Jess Carryer, JDCF Outreach and Education Manager, was joined by special guest, Joan Harmet, to discuss the basics of bluebird nest boxes and how to monitor them.  Bluebird monitoring is a great family activity and volunteers are needed to continue helping bluebirds thrive in Jo Daviess County.  Contact Jess at to find out more!

Join us on Facebook every Thursday morning at 10:00 AM for another Facebook Live event.  If you do not follow JDCF on Facebook, you can do so here.  Simply click ‘like’ and ‘following’ in the left-hand corner just below the cover photo.
