Raptor boxes now available for rent!

It’s been a long time coming, but students were finally able to mount the Kestrel and Screech Owl nesting boxes they created last year for the Roots and Shoots program. On scene were reporters from the Arizona Daily Star, Juan Barba, an arborist and consultant, and Carl Stoekel, our helpful bird expert! To read the article, please click on this link.

Sky Islands also offers our deepest thanks to the great people at Bartlett Tree Experts, who graciously donated their time and equipment to help us hang the nesting boxes, and even let the students get involved and operate the buckets!
