Bluebirds and the Rockfish Valley Trail

The Rockfish Valley Foundation members and volunteers are actively involved in the building and monitoring of Bluebird boxes along the trail. We monitor the trail and record information about the boxes and their inhabitants once a week from April 1 to August 31 each year. Currently, volunteers monitor 52 boxes. A grant from the Virginia Bluebird Society was received to support this effort.
