In the early 1990s the Park Rapids fifth graders began building bluebird houses in science class. The project was designed as an activity to benefit one of our more colorful seasonal songbirds, and although it has accomplished that goal, the benefits go way beyond bluebirds.


This is a project of partnerships involving the school, parents, the Mantrap Valley Conservation Club, and members of the Department of Natural Resources and the Soil and Water Conservation District.
