Wheaton, MD 20902

Description

*This position requires proof of vaccination against Covid 19*

Do you have an interest in local birds? Do you enjoy walking outdoors? Are you excited about hands-on conservation opportunities? Then this is the opportunity for you!


Brookside Nature Center is seeking two bluebird monitors to check on bluebird boxes located along the Matthew Henson Trail in Layhill.

Volunteers are needed to clean out boxes prior to breeding season (March), to monitor nest box activity on a weekly basis throughout the breeding season (March - September), and to record and report data in a timely manner.

More on eastern bluebirds:
Eastern bluebirds are "cavity nesters", nesting in cavitities found in dead and decaying forest trees. With less cavities available, many bluebirds now nest in boxes placed along "bluebird trails!"

Please note:


  • Youth volunteers (under 18) must apply with a parent or guardian.

  • Volunteers must commit to weekly monitoring for one full bluebird breeding season (March - October).

  • This is an outdoor opportunity that requires walking on a paved trail for no more than one mile.

  • If applying individually, you may be paired with another volunteer.

  • Working cellphone required.

  • Training will be provided!


**We are looking for two volunteers who can work together to monitor the boxes located along the Matthew Henson Trail at the intersection of Layhill Rd. and Middlevale Ln.**
