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.

Gift recipient's name: Leave blank if not a gift.

Email addresses of your gift recipients: Leave blank if not a gift.
