This year Pine River Institute is participating in Project Nest Box - School
Nest Watch Program. This is a not-for-profit program which donates nesting
boxes to schools to be installed on the school grounds. The students monitor
the boxes bi-weekly from April through July and report their observations
online at Bird Studies Canada’s Project NestWatch database. Data is shared
nationally with various Provincial Nest Record Schemes providing a
collective picture of the health of bird populations across Canada.
The teachers and students were thrilled to see that some feathered friends
had moved into one of the boxes, built a nest, and laid eggs.
