Kestrel Nesting Box Kiosk: A recent graduate is looking for help putting the finishing touches on a project he completed for his Eagle Scout project. He is looking for someone to create a poster to be put up on the kiosk at a kestrel nesting box site, Farnum Field in Wallingford. "What I would want on it is some basic information about the field, who runs it (the town of Wallingford and the Wallingford Land Trust), some information about the bird, and basic stuff like diet, range, and physical description. If anyone is interested and if you think this could be a good SAE project for someone they or you can email me let me know." For more information please contact Mark Bernick (2016).
