The Learning N.E.S.T (Nature, Education, STEM, Togetherness)

Starting in 2012, Quarry Hill Elementary School began a fundraising initiative to provide a sanctuary to native birds of Pennsylvania. With strong efforts of our Quarry Hill community, the courtyard at Quarry Hill has become the perfect backdrop for learning opportunities and celebrations. After being cleared and appropriately graded, native plants were donated and planted by teams of volunteers including students, parents, teachers and administration. Student Council provided funding for birdfeeders. The “Nestling” Club provides ongoing educational opportunities about our feathered wildlife as well as providing continued care to maintain the Audubon registered status of our sanctuary.

An Audubon certified bird sanctuary encourages one to increase the property’s natural resources for birds. Quarry Hill is doing this in the following ways:

  • Adding water sources (birdbaths)

  • Adding food sources (bird feeders)

  • Adding nesting and cover sites (bird houses)

  • Increasing the percentage of the property with plants/shrubs native to Pennsylvania

An Environmental Education Grant, in the amount of $3000, was awarded to Quarry Hill. In addition to the grant funding, 4 scheduled PTO events were identified to help fund the bird sanctuary. Continuing improvements are always being made.  For more information or to become a volunteer,  please visit our PTO Website www.quarryhillpto.com and blog www.quarryhillbirds.com.  Click on one of the links below to learn about NESTfest and the future plan for our outdoor learning space!
