Wildlife Prairie Park
In 2019, the Wildlife
Prairie Park volunteers were able to successfully fledge 139
Eastern Bluebirds. 2021 was a tougher year when only 73 were
successfully fledged. The WPP team is working diligently
toward having a successful 2022 year.
There will be plenty of time for Herb to answer all your questions
about what to do - as well as what NOT to do - on monitoring,
managing, and promoting the conservation of bluebirds.
