ADOPT A KESTREL NEST BOX
You can support American kestrels in Wisconsin. By adopting a nest box, you are providing critical funds that allow our biologists to maintain their nesting habitat and band adults and chicks to help us understand and conserve these tiny falcons.
The Adopt a Nest Box Program is $50 for 5 years of kestrel support. If a kestrel pair raise the most young possible each year in that box, you're helping bring 30 young kestrels into the world. You'll receive a personalized adoption certificate to show off to your friends.
To adopt a nest box, get started by filling out the form below.
HELP US BAND KESTRELS
Join us for an upcoming banding field trip, which we partner with the Aldo Leopold Audubon Society (Stevens Point), Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, or Madison Audubon Society to host. Click their names to see if there are any upcoming banding sessions.
Janet and Amber are also willing to speak to bird groups, birding clubs, or classes if within 2 hours of Stevens Point. Contact us to learn more.
BUILD A KESTREL NEST BOX
You can play a big part in kestrels' recovery in Wisconsin! Kestrels readily take to nest boxes, if they're properly constructed, installed, and maintained. Download instructions here.
If you install a nest box at your property, please let us know -- we may be able to come band the kestrels in your nest!
