Teacher of the Year Award

Sue Hall, of Stevens Point, has received the 2020 Teacher of the Year Award from the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin (BRAW).

Hall was cited for her 35 years of teaching children to enjoy nature.  She has installed bluebird nest boxes at six area grade schools.  “The children are amazed at how the nests and eggs look, as well as how quickly the chicks grow,” said Hall.

In addition to helping monitor a trail with 40 nest boxes, she volunteers with bluebird displays at the local Children’s Museum, Boston School Forest, Monk Gardens in Wausau and Fall Family Festival at the Mead Wildlife Area near Milladore. 

Hall assists husband Kent in giving a presentation “Learning to Think Like a Bluebird” at the Portage County Library and for the Natural Resources Foundation.  They both have served on the BRAW board of directors.

Lifetime Achievement Award

Andrew Struck has received the 2020 Achievement Year Award from the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin (BRAW).  for work he has overseen in bringing back the eastern bluebird to Wisconsin.

Struck has done much to further promote the respotarion and conservation of bluebirds  by overseeing the installation of bluebird nest boxes in two parks 

 

This award recognizes the the work Struck has done overseeing the installation of 90 bluebird boxes at county parks, including 21 at Tendick Nature Park and 22 at Hawthorne Hills County Park and Golf Course.  The bluebird houses are part of a restoration effort at Tendick that began in 2007 to restore native prairie and wetlands, plant native trees and improve habitat for fish, wildlife and pollinators.  Installation of the bluebird boxes has been partially funded by grants from Bird City Wisconsin.

 

BRAW President Patrick Ready recognizes the importance of  Struck's dedicated commitment and effort to ensure that the state's Eastern Bluebird and other native cavity nesters population remain strong and stable.
