We welcome Marlene Eader, Bird Steward on Wrightsville Beach

Marlene Eader moved to Wilmington from Columbus, Ohio in January 2010 and started volunteering with Audubon NC in April 2010.  Marlene helped develop the Bird Steward program on Wrightsville Beach with Coastal Biologist Lindsay Addison in 2013 as the seasonal Volunteer Coordinator for Audubon NC and has been coordinating the the Wrightsville Beach Bird Steward Program for 6 nesting seasons.  

The Wrightsville Beach program is considered a model program for the National Audubon Society and is being used as an example for bird steward programs along the Atlantic coast. 


 We Are Collecting Nests for UNCW Students

Once the Babies have fledged and you are ready to clean out your nesting box, grab a zip lock plastic bag and carefully add the old nest.  Note which kind of bird and location if you know.  Nests from shrubbery are of course welcome too. Drop off at 3590 Ruddy Duck Wynd on front porch
