This program is for the birds: bluebirds that is.

The Vernon North Okanagan Naturalists’ Club has established hundreds of man-made nests for the beautiful bird and they are inviting others to get in on helping the feathered friends.

A workshop and information session on the Bluebird Trail Program is planned for Saturday, April 6 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Vernon branch of the Okanagan Regional Library.

The NONC joined the Bluebird Nest Box Program more than 25 years ago to help increase the dwindling numbers of bluebirds.

NONC manages 18 nestbox trails on farms and ranch lands with some 400 nest boxes.

Each trail has from eight to 40 boxes which are maintained and monitored weekly.
