Bluebird Nestbox Monitoring
Friday, March 9, 1 p.m.
Adshead Hall
Bluebirds are capable of doing all the important work themselves, but by monitoring you will be treated to a very interesting process. You may even be able to help them should a problem arise, like an ant infestation. What is monitoring? Monitoring a nest box may include regular observation from nearby, and periodically opening the box, just enough to take a peek to see what phase of the process the nesting birds are in. Monitoring a bluebird nest box can be a quick process and doesn't need to take longer than a minute or two. It's important to remember that bluebirds are very accepting of human interaction and will never abandon a nest because of monitoring. Come enjoy a program on Bluebird Nestbox Monitory and how you can help on the
Uplands Campus.



 Pi Day 2018
Wednesday, March 14, 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Adshead Hall

Again this year, the entire community is invited to Pi Day. The event is sponsored and coordinated by the Upper Meadows Neighborhood. Think of this event as a covered dish with only pie as the menu. The pie can be dessert-type such as fruit or cheese, or can be pizza in round shape. Pi Day is the annual celebration of the mathematical constant pi. 3.14 = Circumference divided by the Diameter of any circle. Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3.14) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of pi. You are encouraged to bring a pie to share. Pie-less people are also welcome. Plates, napkins, forks will be provided. There will be no program. We will just enjoy eating pies and talking with each other.
