Volunteers needed for River Park Nest Box Program.

I thought I should pass this along as this organization needs help restoring native birds and wildlife to the riparian habitat around the Lakeside portion of the San Diego river.

Here is their description of the program and the opportunity:

The purpose of the volunteer Nest Box Program is to attract birds that once lived along the San Diego River in Lakeside back to this restored habitat. This segment of the San Diego River had long been the focus of extensive sand mining operations and heavy industry. Such industrial operations are coming to an end and a new phase of the river’s life is at hand; one in which nature and humanity work in harmony! Lakeside’s River Park Conservancy purchased this property in 2003 and has been busy restoring it by removing invasive species and planting California native species that will attract birds and wildlife back to the river. These critters will use this new habitat to build their homes, find food and breed in. Volunteers who are accepted into the Nest Box Program will learn about these animals and encourage their introduction back by building, installing, monitoring and maintaining nest boxes.

For more information, please contact the conservancy using the information below:
