On March 17, 2012, MBS presented an orientation presentation for bluebird monitors as a guest of the Accokeek Foundation.  The Foundation stewards 200 pristine acres across the Potomac River from Mount Vernon.  Accokeek has 20 bluebird boxes mounted within their borders and a dozen or more monitors whose job it is to attend to the boxes on a weekend day of their choosing.  Board member Jay Jones led a forty-minute program that acquainted new monitors with the history of Eastern Bluebird recovery in the area and oriented them to successful nestbox monitoring techniques.  A display table offered nestboxes of several designs, predator traps, and an example of a nestbox mounted on a pole, with baffle. Following the presentation, Mr. Jones accompanied the monitors on a walking tour of the Accokeek bluebird trail.
