The New York State Bluebird Society (NYSBS) will be having its public spring meeting on Saturday April 13, 2013, at 10:00 am, at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Five Rivers Environmental Educational Center, 56 Game Farm Road Delmar. The NYSBS is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of the Eastern Bluebird, our state bird. Its mission is to monitor and increase production of the Eastern Bluebird and other cavity nesting birds, to educate and inform the people of New York on the management of Eastern Bluebirds, to conduct research on bluebirds and their habitat and to develop synergies with like minded people and groups.
The program will start with a bird walk on the grounds of Five Rivers, followed by two presentations. The first presentation will be given by Mr. John Ruska, the Past-President and a Lifetime Director of the NYSBS, on Bluebirds. The second presentation will be given by Ms. Kimberley Corwin, also a member of the Board of Directors and the Chair of the NYSBS Grant’s Committee. Ms. Corwin’s presentation will give an overview of research currently being funded by the NYSBS on the Red Headed Woodpecker.
The program is open to the public free of charge. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants are urged to dress appropriately for the bird walk. The programs will be followed by light refreshments.
