San Juan Island’s Student Conservationists

Spring Street School in Friday Harbor provided an enthusiastic group of young conservationists on Thursday, February 9 on SJPT’s Hunter Preserve on Mt. Dallas. Ms. Massey’s 8th grade class came out to help Kathleen Foley, SJPT’s program director, install nest boxes to encourage diversity among the birds that use the preserve. The boxes provide artificial nesting cavities for Western bluebirds, saw-whet owls and flickers.
