Scheduled this year to meet on Saturday, June 27, 2015. Main presentation begins at 10:00 a.m. Please try to arrive before 10:00a.m. Scheduled activities end by 2:00 p.m. The 2014 event was a huge success with 140 attendees from six states!
I plan to attend the 2015 event– will be my first time. What is not to love about cavity/colony nesters? We humans can do plenty to help them. It is more than just putting up housing for them and leaving it. Monitoring and caretaking is required for success year to year. See what it’s all about.
