Bluebird Box ProgramIMG_4214

In March of 2015, ten Bluebird boxes were installed at Raccoon River Park. These Bluebird boxes will be checked and monitored by volunteers. These boxes are to encourage the Eastern Bluebird to nest in the area and increase the biodiversity of the park.

Think you want to build your own Bluebird box?  Create a Bluebird box with these plans!
