Introduction
Bridgestone America's Kings Mountain facility is a textile manufacturing plant located in Gaston County, North Carolina, about 35 miles west of Charlotte. The team’s objective is to help restore and increase the populations of cavity-nesting birds, focusing on eastern bluebirds. The habitat site features a pollinator garden, waterbodies, woody habitats, and native bird boxes.

Practices and Impacts
  • To create new nesting habitat for native avian species in the region, the team installed nesting boxes for bluebirds, as well as for native hawk and owl species on-site. The team also planted a variety of native pollinator plant species and trees to create additional habitat and food for the birds.
  • The team monitors the bird boxes monthly and regularly observes nesting activity.
