Twelve nesting boxes have been placed around the Selinsgrove Area School District's campuses. Four nest boxes were made by fifth graders when they attended the Intermediate School's annual Outdoor Education Program. The other eight were furnished by Cindy and Don O'Hora.

Congratulations to Jackson-Penn Elementary and Selinsgrove Area Intermediate School. They are the first schools to host bluebird families! Additionally, SAIS has a tree swallow family in another nest box. In Mid June 2002, one of the boxes at the High School was hosting a bluebird family.

The following resources were donated to the SASD by a local bird enthusiast, Cindy O'Hora, for use by students and staff.

The Bluebird Monitor's Guide by C Berger, K. Kridler, & J Griggs - available at the High School library.

Bluebird Rescue by Joan Rattner Heilman - available at the Intermediate School's library.

Two Bluebird learning tubs which contain: Bluebird's First Summer by Helena Craven, Bluebird habitat bulletin, bluebird nest puppet (only in 1), a nest box, lesson plans for birds, bluebird tracking reporting forms & other educational materials. - available through Selinsgrove Elementary's professional library and at Jackson-Penn Elementary School.
