Lane Poulin of Crawford is the Crawford County coordinator for the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin, Inc.When asked why she loves bluebirds so much, Lane Poulin says, "They are happy birds in a world of insanity.They give you hope."Poulin, who live in rural Gays Mills, says she "fell into" her position as Crawford County coordinator for the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin (BRAW).She learned about the group from a coworker in 1996, sent for the information and put up some houses.About a year ago she became the local coordinator for Crawford County.She monitors her bluebird houses, keeps them free of nuisance birds, clears out blowflies and hornets, and keeps an eye out for ants, snakes, cats and raccoons which would harm the birds.She sends in reports to BRAW about how many birds are nesting in her houses and how many young they raise.She also volunteers her time and is available to any and all fourth and fifth grade classrooms in the county to speak about bluebirds, as well as any other group which is interested in learning more.What is her reward for all of this?Well, she sometimes just sits back and watches the approximately 30 bluebirds which hang around her house at the end of each summer.She saw her first bluebird this year on Feb. 14."This is what I do for fun," she says with a huge smile.A large part of what BRAW does is monitoring bluebirds."Its like a wonderful science project, for me and for the children who participate after learning about bluebirds in school."The purpose and mission of BRAW is to monitor and increase the production of the Eastern Bluebird and other native cavity nesting birds through a coordinated statewide nest box construction and monitoring program.Poulin has five bluebird boxes she checks regularly.She positively beams when talking about seeing the young in the nest."They are very friendly and don't mind at all being viewed," she said, "but don't touch the eggs."
...
There is a lot of room for more, says Poulin.BRAW seeks to expand public knowledge and enthusiasm for the Eastern Bluebird so that a growing number of people will have the desire to aid bluebirds and know how to do it successfully.BRAW coordinates its bluebird recovery program through workshops and meetings, press releases, web site, articles in publications, and its official quarterly newsletter, The Wisconsin Bluebird.BRAW also has an annual membership meeting which is in different parts of Wisconsin each year.The network of BRAW County Coordinators conducts local workshops each year, typically during the late winter and early spring.These resource people help individuals, clubs, and organizations to effectively aid in the effort of bluebird restoration.Poulin says she loves the school presentation she does, and she gets a huge kick out of the kids remembering her as "the bluebird lady."Some schools, such as North Crawford, are very supportive of the project.They even have the high school shop students cutting out pieces of donated wood so the younger students can assemble birdhouses.Funds for the project were donated by the Crawford County Children's Advisory Board."It is just a very fun thing," Poulin says.For more information about BRAW or to set a free informational presentation, contact Lane Poulin at (608)872-2156 or go online to www.braw.org.
