Late last fall, Newbury Elementary School teacher Jeff Goodell approached Housewright Construction, Inc for assistance with a project that combined educational and community service opportunities for his 5th /6th grade class. His class, aka “The Otters,” was studying the Eastern Bluebird. Learning that this bird’s population struggles with a lack of suitable nesting spaces, the students were curious about ways they could provide assistance within Newbury. They decided to build bluebird houses. After researching topics such as habitat, nesting needs, range, and breeding habits, the Otters approached the local community asking for volunteers to “house” nesting boxes. They located six suitable habitat sites within walking distance of the school and measured each to determine how many boxes could be on a property. They concluded they would need 25 boxes – and that’s where Housewright could help them. Click the link below for the rest of the story
