Bluebird Box Build

A 2021 GCMGA grant was awarded to Georgia Piedmont Land Trust’s (GPLT) Mary Kistner Center to build bluebird boxes. In late July, a small group of GPLT members and master gardeners joined forces to build 38 nesting boxes. Two of the boxes will add to an existing box at the Mary Kistner Center and the rest will be placed throughout the county at various locations including community gardens and parks. It was a fun learning experience and will enhance the growth of bluebirds throughout the Piedmont area.
