Conservation goals and practices can best be achieved when they involve multiple stakeholders in projects. We formed an alliance with a local corporation to establish a bluebird trail comprised of four-dozen boxes distributed throughout hundreds of acres of their property. In addition, we have also partnered with the Bluebird Society of Pennsylvania who, in addition to providing us with numerous boxes and excellent advice, will also serve as a larger repository for data collected at these boxes and many others throughout Pennsylvania. This project will directly benefit bluebirds and other native cavity nesting birds in our area while simultaneously training students about conservation practices and alliances, as well as the natural history of birds.
