The Friends of Green Meadows Preserve Board is working with the Parks to try and work out a schedule to cut the fields at the very best time to benefit the Birds and Butterflies, so we can maximize the flowers and insect food source.
As some of you have seen that we are planting fruit bearing Trees/Shrubs at a number of the Nest Boxes already to help with the food source by producing berries during the Fall/Winter season.
We still have a number of these that can be sponsored by Garden Groups, Hiking Groups or individuals. The sponsorship is $100.00 that pays for the Shrub/Tree, the materials needed for planting the trees and a portion of the sponsorship goes toward the Bluebird Trail to help with the cost of maintaining the trail and the feeding of the birds during the nesting season with Dried Mealworms.

Most of you know where the "Tree of Life" is located on the Bluebird Trail. She is located on the right hand side of the trail after you go around the bend. She is beautiful at all seasons, but I thought it would be nice to see her in all four seasons side by side.

For those of you who have not been on one of my Bluebird Trail Walk and Talk Tours. She is a Southern Red Oak and she is 170 years plus old. If only she could only talk, can you imagine all the stories she would have to share with us. Being pre-civil war and all the people who have farmed the land around her and all the stories that have shared by people setting under her shade while taking a rest from the HOT sun.

"where birds come to life"
25 Bluebird Nest Boxes and 10 Feed Stations have been
sponsored by Friends of the Bluebird Trail and placed along the 2.3 mile short trail, there are
additional trail's at longer distances for hiking within the 112
acres of open pastures and meadows. The sponsorships have helped with the support
and feeding of the birds and has helped to grow the at risk Bluebird population.
