Bluebirds & You – A Free Workshop

April 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Everyone is invited to enjoy a workshop on one of our most beautiful native birds, the bluebird, presented by volunteers from the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation’s (JDCF), Bluebird Recovery Program. No reservations are needed, and admission is free.

The morning workshop will be filled with interesting and colorful information about these beautiful birds, including how you can help monitor bluebird trails and local woodpecker populations, and even attract them to your property. You are encouraged to come whether you are a new or experienced birder.

Experts from JDCF’s Bluebird Recovery Program will relate lessons learned from their years of experience in setting up and monitoring bluebird nest boxes and share how the success of the bluebird trails in Jo Daviess County has brought bluebirds back from the brink of extinction. Discover the best ways to select the location for a nest box, the features of the nest box, and what to expect when you monitor the bluebirds who use it. You can also find out how to join a team monitoring an existing bluebird trail or attract these gems of blue to raise families in your own yard.
