New Life

New life is appearing at the Pinery Country Club. Our Mountain Chickadee nest boxes that we built and installed about a month ago are starting to fill up with eggs. These new nest boxes are part of our Audubon Sanctuary for Golf Course program that we established 18 months ago. Even our old Mountain Bluebird boxes are filling up with life again. It is exciting to see all of our hard work paying off and helping the environment at the same time.
