Where we do it

The first trail was at Fort C.F. Smith Park.

In 2006, a second trail was created nearby at Thrifton Hill Park.

In 2008, our third trail went up at Taylor Elementary. Thanks to Wolf Scouts of Pack 149 for building nestboxes and installing them. The 4th grade nestbox monitors at Taylor Elementary were pleasantly surprised to discover a bluebird nest on their trail.  It may well be the first reported  in Arlington in decades.  We will have to see whether there is enough quality habitat in Arlington to support more bluebirds.

In 2016, our fourth trail went up at Glebe Elementary with a grant of four nestboxes from VBS and another one from the Glebe Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

In 2019, our fifth trail went up at Long Bridge Park along the Potomac River.
