About the Program
The Chesapeake Terminal, a part of the Argos Corporation, is located in Chesapeake Virginia, approximately 5 miles South of Norfolk. Unfortunately, this site is located in an area that has experienced dramatic urbanization during recent decades resulting in marked declines in available habitat for wildlife species across all taxa. To help address this issue the team manages 7 acres of mixed river and grassland habitats on their site.

Practices and Impacts

  • Three eastern bluebird nest boxes are located on the property to increase nesting opportunities for the native birds. The team maintains the boxes outside of breeding season and monitors them during breeding season.
  • Team members actively monitor and maintain 3 bluebird nesting boxes
