January Volunteer of the Month

Judd Brink

I am a long-term member and supporter of the Arb. I took the Master Naturalist course in 2011 and my project was to redo the Bluebird Trail. I have added 10 new Bluebird boxes since 2012 and redesigned the location and route of the Bluebird trail and maintained them each week during the nesting season April through August.  MN Backyard Birds donated the feeding station and continues to maintain each week for the past 10 years. I am President of the Bee-Nay-She Bird Council, member at large for the Brainerd Audubon Chapter and member of the Master Naturalist Club, all that meet and volunteer for some events at the Arb. I am one of the guides/leaders for the spring bird walks sponsored by the Brainerd Audubon Chapter and participated in programs & presentations, Kids camp classes and school groups.

Happy Birding! If anyone has questions about feeding or watching birds, please contact me at jb@mnbackyardbirds.com.
