Donate: Support Our Research Projects

Calvert Nature Society  helps to raise funds for materials for Natural Resource Division research projects. Funds  supply volunteers with the tools and materials necessary to help staff. For a list of all our projects, click here. We currently have several opportunities to contribute: Nesting Box Project, and the Adopt an Owl Campaign.

Donate today to support these important research projects.

ADOPT AN OWL

Two of our local owls especially need our support. The updated Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Action Plan will list the Northern Saw-whet Owl as “highly imperiled” and Barn Owls are to be classified at “high risk of extinction.” You can support their conservation and research.

Support Saw-whet Owls
Staff and volunteers monitor these tiny owls during migration. Funds are needed for research supplies. Donors receive:

● A unique band number from a migrating owl
● Opportunities to observe catch and release owl banding
Boxes for Barn Owls
We currently rely on scouts and volunteers to build nest boxes for Barn Owls. Funds are needed for construction materials and predator guards. Adopt-a-box donations of $50 or more receive:
● Photo of your adopted Barn Owl 
● Year-end nesting summary
● Opportunities to observe owl fledgling owl banding
Please consider supporting our Owl Program with a donation. Fill out the donation form below and add "Adopt an Owl" to the comment line.


NESTING BOX PROJECT

Calvert County Natural
Resources Division is currently conducting County-wide nest box research projects for Bluebirds, Barn Owls, American Kestrels and Prothonotary Warblers. The projects revolve around the construction and placement of nest boxes in suitable habitat. Nest boxes are monitored by volunteers and the data collected allows us to evaluate the status of these important nesting species within Calvert County.

With your donation, we will provide you with a photo of your adopted box, its location and the year–end nesting results. Donations support the nest box for one year.
