Kestral Ecology and Monitoring Workshop

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

The Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department - Ecological Division is expanding its bird monitoring efforts through a County-wide American kestrel nest box monitoring program. The Department received a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Citizen Based Monitoring Grant to purchase, install and monitor kestrel nest boxes with the help of volunteers. A kestrel ecology and monitoring workshop is being held on Wednesday, March 22nd at the Mee-Kwon Park Golf Course clubhouse in Mequon from 6:00pm-8:30pm to kick-off the program. Bill Mueller, Director of the Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Observatory will discuss kestrel ecology and decline, and what is needed to build and install a kestrel box. Department staff will discuss how individuals can help with installation and monitoring kestrel nest boxes throughout Ozaukee County. If you’re interested in getting involved with this program or other ecologically-related opportunities through the Department, call Tina Kroening.
