A Different Kind of Back-to-School Story

In 2012, Chrisula Stone began her journey as a nest box monitor while volunteering with Kenton County Parks and Recreation (Kentucky). Little did she know that it would soon spark her curiosity and desire to dig deeper. We’re inspired by her decision to enroll in college at 38 as a working mom and pursue her passion of studying cavity-nesting birds. Chrisula recently presented her first scientific poster at the Wilson Ornithological Society’s annual conference, and she has also written a blog post about her experiences. All the while, she continues to coordinate her local NestWatch Chapter. Don’t miss this impressive story!
