The Town of Castle Rock has over 150 Bluebird houses installed in the community and uses volunteers from the POST Partners of Castle Rock to monitor the birdhouses during the nesting season annually. If you are interested in volunteering, here is a brochure which explains the project in more detail.

The program has you check specific nest boxes weekly and keep an online Google Docs document current with your findings. Training is offered with about 2 hours a week being all the time needed to monitor a nest box. Other volunteers build new boxes and install them in March each year.
If you don't live in Castle Rock, check for spring and summer volunteer opportunities with your local Audubon Society.
The Training Manual is a PDF located here. Training is offered at 7PM Wednesday, March 18 at the Castle Rock Town Hall in the upstairs Chamber Room. I hope you can make it.
