FoHVOS can provide support and guidance for wildlife conservation. While our primary program involves working with American Kestrel nesting boxes, FoHVOS can also provide guidance for enhancing your property for other wildlife.
You can learn more about Threatened and Endangered Species in the Hopewell Valley.
- Kestrel Conservation Program
Participants in this program receive a complimentary kestrel nesting box, which FoHVOS staff will install and monitor during the breeding season.
Prior to nest box installation, the site will be evaluated for presence of kestrel-appropriate habitat. FoHVOS follows NJDEP's Endangered and Non-game Species Program protocols to install and monitor nesting boxes.
To learn more about the American Kestrel, visit the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ.
