Ongoing - Blue Bird project: The Bluebird Trail Project at
the Norristown Farm Park is part of a nationwide conservation project that
has been very successful in increasing the numbers of eastern bluebirds.
Volunteers build and repair birdhouses, set up bluebird house trails and
monitor the houses throughout the nesting season from March until August.
Monitoring involves recording data about species of bird using the houses
and the number of eggs, hatchlings and fledglings. No experience is
necessary to volunteer. The amount of time a volunteer spends on the
project is flexible and depends upon his/her schedule.
