EMN Bluebird Stewards monitor Bluebird houses, located throughout many parks in Johnson County, during the nesting season to protect bluebirds from predators and other dangers. They also collect data on the number of nests, eggs and successful fledglings. This citizen science project shows us how well our parks are supporting bluebirds. In addition, Bluebird Stewards are rolling out educational resources for teachers, home schoolers, civic groups, and anyone interested in learning more about these beautiful birds.
Visit our Bluebird Educational Materials page for preschool, K-2, and grades 3-5 curriculum for teaching about bluebirds in Kansas.
In partnership with Johnson County Parks and Recreation District, the EMN program works to restore natural habitats at several sites including the Oakridge Woodland Restoration Area at Shawnee Mission Park and the woodlands of Ernie Miller Nature Center. This involves both removing invasive plant species as well as restoring native plant species. The EMN program is also partnering with Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks to restore the prairie at Olathe Prairie Center.
