Burnet Boy Scouts Troop 282 builds boxes for bluebirds at Balcones

Burnet Boy Scouts Troop 282 offered a helping hand to the bluebirds that nest in the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. Scouts Mario Frausto (left), Jack Dykowski, Dillon Orrison, Josh Orrison and Dalton Orrison, along with troop leaders Kim Dykowski (left), Scott Orrison and Tommy Phillips, built seven new bluebird boxes and cleaned and repaired 26. To see the bird boxes, hike any of the five interconnected trails on the Balcones Canyonland’s Doeskin Ranch Unit, located on RR 1174 east of Marble Falls. The unit offers easy to moderate hiking trails free of charge. For more information, visit www.fws.gov/refuge/balcones_canyonlands. Courtesy photo
