About the Program
Manassass Quarry, owned by Vulcan Materials Company supplies and distributes construction materials. It's located in Manassas, Virginia just west of Washington DC and the Potomac River. This Quarry works to provide a variety of habitats and nesting structures to attract native fauna to the local community.

Practices and Impacts
  • Nesting boxes have been placed throughout the quarry and are monitored in hopes of attracting native eastern bluebirds, tree swallows, house wrens and Carolina chickadees. These boxes are cleaned annually and have proven successful with 151 eggs laid, 142 hatched, and 137 fledglings in the last two years.
