This is the summer season photo of the Tree of Life, she is so full, green and beautiful during this season.
Come bring your easy chair and a bottle of water and come set a spell during these mid 90's HOT days.
She will make you feel cooler just by looking at her, must less setting under her beautiful green cool canopy.
Our last Walk and Talk Tour on Saturday June 13th was a big success, we had 25 brave people come out on a HOT Saturday morning to learn more about the Bluebird Trail and Bluebird.
One of the items we need for the Bluebird Trail and the many kids and school groups that we do field trips for is Binoculars new or used.
The kids love to take Binoculars on their walks, they think they can see so many more birds and they can see them up close. We put numbers on the binoculars and they check them out and in after their walk.
The Bluebird Trail is totally funded through Sponsorships, Contributions and friends of the Bluebird Trail. My pocket funds the difference that it takes to feed the birds during nesting season to help with the healthy development of the baby birds and the cold winter to help keep them alive.
During the Nesting season we feed them Dried Mealworms, to help supplement their insect diet.
Now their are a lot of wild black berries in the park that helps with their food source.
This is why we are planting berry producing shrubs/trees that are sponsored by different individuals to replace the man made perches at each Nest Box. This will help to provide food during the fall and winter to cut down on our mealworm cost. They are all native trees/shrubs and we have planted 6 already and have 15 that have been sponsored. We will plant the remainder of shrubs/trees in the fall, so they can get established during the fall and winter when we get rain.
Right now we are having to haul water in five gallon buckets out to the 6 shrubs/trees that we have planted. With this mid 90 degree weather and not much rain, we are trying to keep them alive until we get some rain on a regular basis.
I hope on your next walk on the Trail you will be able to see the adults flying around the open fields.
We hope to be able to have the signs in areas of question as to which way you should go to follow the Trail. As you can see it is of the Bluebird and our Tree of Life in the Park.
