About the Program
The Lawrenceville Quarry located in Virginia, managed by Vulcan Materials Company, consists of approximately 30 acres of landscaped, forested and wetland habitat. With the hopes of providing nesting opportunities for eastern bluebirds (as they are primarily cavity nesters) 22 bluebird nesting boxes have been installed throughout the site. 

Practices and Impacts
  • Nesting boxes were placed in areas adjacent to wetlands and forests to provide foraging opportunities and water access to breeding eastern bluebirds. Boxes are monitored monthly and any damaged boxes are replaced prior to the following breeding season.
