Formal Garden
The Louise Bush-Brown Formal Perennial Garden is just one of the many gardens volunteers have an opportunity to explore as they help maintain this historic and educational space.

We are in the process of monitoring our buildings for bird strikes. Three buildings are being monitored. Volunteers would walk the perimeter of select buildings on a regular basis observing the ground and windows for evidence of bird/building collisions following a prescribed protocol. Volunteer will complete and submit a form on a regular basis. Observations should be done as close to sunrise/dawn and sunset/dusk as possible.

The data collected will be sued to help inform decision making regarding prevention of bird/building collisions on campus.
