Sixth Grade Scouts Out Locations on Campus for Bluebird Boxes

Barnesville’s partnership with Black Hill Regional Park weaves together art, science, and nature, as evidenced by the 6th Grade Bluebird Box project.

Sixth graders put the finishing touches on Bluebird boxes they assembled last week. Black Hill Regional Park Naturalist, Tina Stachura, instructed that when decorating the boxes, it is important to use lighter colors to keep the temperature down inside the boxes to cut down on the mortality rate of the baby birds.

Ms. Stachura also took the students outside to scout out ideal locations for the boxes to be installed around Barnesville’s campus. On their visit to Black Hill last week, the sixth graders learned about Bluebirds and how to check on the boxes to ensure they are not taken over by invasive species of birds.
