About the New Jersey Bluebird Society
The New Jersey Bluebird Society (NJBS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the population of bluebirds in New Jersey. As a state organization affiliate of the North American Bluebird Society (NABS), our mission in New Jersey is to further support the NABS which is a nonprofit education, conservation, and research organization that promotes the recovery of bluebirds.
The NJBS’s primary goal is to produce a healthy and productive bluebird population in New Jersey by establishing trails that are located in suitable habitat while utilizing and promoting recommended bluebird management practices (proper housing, protection from predators, and nest monitoring). We also recognize the importance and necessity to promote management of bluebirds in backyards. To accomplish these goals our objectives will be to:
- provide expertise and guidance to trail monitors and backyard bluebird enthusiasts;
- monitor population trends from year to year by surveying the number of young fledged from nest boxes; and,
- provide public education about bluebirds to interested people in the State.
