Every year the Friends of Hagerman gives the public an opportunity to support the Eastern Bluebird population and learn all about them via the Adopt-A-Nestbox Program. Participants of the Adopt-A-Nestbox program will be invited to name their adopted nestbox, and visit it as often as they like. All nestboxes included in the program are easily accesible via a stroll along Raasch or Harris Creek Hiking Trails.
Participants will receive an email every week during nesting season with a picture of the inside of the nestbox and an explanation of its stages of development. An adopted nestbox makes a great Christmas gift!
The price of $35 per nestbox helps to support the expense of maintaining the impressive Bluebird trail of 45 nestboxes throughout the refuge. There is a limit of three nestboxes per person.
Things to Consider While Naming Your Nestbox:
"Nestbox Name" refers to the label you would like on your nestbox, for example: Porter's Perch
Be creative! Your nestbox may house Eastern Bluebirds, Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Carolina Wrens or (rarely) Prothonotary Warblers--so try be more inclusive than "Bluebirds" in the label. If left blank, the label will be the gift recipient's name or the purchaser's name if not a gift. NOTE: 15 letters maximum.
