Cleaning for a Reason   

If you know any woman currently undergoing Chemo, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning - 1 time per month for 4 months while she is in treatment.  

All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service.  

The Central Florida Community College is proud to offer many continuing education classes right here in Citrus County.  These classes provide the residents of Citrus County with an opportunity to enhance their career, expand their knowledge, or just have a little “fun” while meeting others with the same interest.  For information, please check out our website at http://www.cf.edu/ or call 352 249-1210

PINE RIDGE BLUEBIRD TRAIL

For residents new to Pine Ridge and those who have lived here a number of years we’d like to introduce (or reacquaint) you with the Pine Ridge Bluebird Trail. The Pine Ridge Bluebird Trail was established many years ago by several residents as a means to improve the birding population in our area, specifically, Bluebirds. At that time approximately 50 nesting boxes were hand crafted and installed in the DRA’s. You may have noticed these boxes while driving around Pine Ridge.

Currently our team of volunteer monitors, Staber Dearth, Virginia Hall and Brinda Curran are happy to report there now 82 Bluebird Nesting boxes located throughout our Drainage Retention Areas (DRAs). Over the last two months, each of these boxes have been mapped, inventoried, repaired or replaced and are now home to both the Carolina Chickadee or Eastern Bluebird. While the goal is to increase the local Bluebird populations, other cavity nesting birds tend to use these boxes as well. Tufted Titmouse, Downy Woodpeckers and even Great Crested Flycatchers to name a few.

The data gathered from monitoring these nesting boxes is being reported to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology on a continual basis using NestWatch.org - a nationwide monitoring program designed to track status and trends in the reproductive biology of birds, including when nesting occurs, number of eggs laid, how many eggs hatch, and how many hatchlings survive. The database is intended to be used to study the current condition of breeding bird populations and how they may be changing over time as a result of climate change, habitat degradation and loss, expansion of urban areas, and the introduction of non-native plants and animals.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped get us this far and we ask that everyone be mindful of the nesting birds. If you have nesting boxes on your property, NestWatch.org is a useful website for tracking your own data. You might even consider becoming a certified NestWatch volunteer and join our group.

For nesting box issues such as damaged boxes or boxes that have fallen over - anything out of the ordinary that we can correct contact us (see below). Please refrain from placing your own personal nesting boxes in the DRAs. If you live near a DRA that does not have a nesting box and you would like us to add one, let us know. Also, if you need a Bluebird nesting box for your yard, Citrus County Extension Offices located at 3650 W. Sovereign Path (352) 527-5700 has nesting boxes that are built by 4-H and are available for a $10 donation.

Thank you,

Staber Dearth = staberdearth@hotmail.com
