males and a female Bluebird.

One of our many successful Saturday morning
Walk and Talk Tours.

Saturday morning Tour.

This year while in Ireland we found the house we want to stay in
when we visit for 3 or 4 months.

I thought this very approbate for the area around
Green Meadows  Preserve PARK.

This big guy likes to keep an eye on me when I am in the
 PARK filling the feeders with dried mealworms.
One of many Eagle Scout Projects finished
and donated to the PARK this year.


A very successful turn out for one of our Garden Clubs
on a Walk and Talk Tour this year.


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

IN THE HEAT OF MID-JULY, THINK FALL TOURS!

Not sure how many more 90 degree plus days we can stand of this weather. It is the baby birds and Eggs in the Nest Boxes that I worry about.

This Bluebird couple made a nest in one of the 
mealworm feeders. This one way of being close
to a food source!



Try to think of cooler weather for the Fall and plan to come join us for one or all of our Bluebird Trail Walk and Talk Tours. Bring a Friend or Neighbor with you!






This is a good shot of the open field trail someone took and posted on 
Friends of Green Meadows Facebook page. Thanks!


I hope you are enjoying the latest Eagle Scout Project that was completed in June.


would like to leave you with this message and quote from an article I read in the MDJ. The best way to slow and reverse climate change is to plant a Billion Trees!
