BLUEBIRD NESTING BOXES IN STRAWBERRY VALLEY
Leaders: Jeanne Le Ber and Ray Smith
Please join us. We will meet at 8 am in the South-east corner of the Shopko
Parking lot in Sugarhouse or 9:15am at the Strawberry Valley Visitor Center.
The morning will be spent checking the boxes and recording the species using
each box, and if there are eggs or young birds. It's very exciting -- you
never quite know what you are going to find!
Afterwards we will gather for lunch. Please bring your own sandwich;
GSLA will provide cold drinks.
Call Jeanne or Ray at 801-532-7384 if you have questions.
