Building Bluebird Boxes by Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies

Washington’s wildlife action plan prioritizes public education and involvement in conservation of South Puget Sound Prairies, the most endangered habitat in the state. Through Project Bluebird, The Nature Conservancy and Black Hills Audubon bring together students and volunteers to build nesting boxes to increase the number of western bluebirds in prairies and to educate the public about bird and habitat conservation. The western bluebird’s comeback in Washington and across the country has been due to the proliferation of bluebird boxes. 

In addition, The Nature Conservancy and its partners have removed invasive plants, restored native grasses, and planted oak seedlings on thousands of acres of prairie. This proactive collaboration will conserve the western bluebird and the prairie habitat it depends upon for future generations.
