Help Replace the Nest Boxes at Worthington Park Elementary School

FROM FACEBOOK: Friends and neighbors in the Worthington Park Elementary school area: A terrible thing happened over the weekend of June 8-9th. Someone smashed ALL 21 nestboxes located along the creek on school grounds. Many of the boxes contained active nests with eggs and baby birds including Eastern bluebirds, Tree swallows, Black-capped Chickadees, and House wrens. The boxes were destroyed and the nests, eggs, and babies tossed onto the ground. Even the poles were snapped off or bent. Very little is salvageable and there is no sign of any of the young. The level of destruction and cruelty is far beyond mere vandalism. It took someone a lot of time and effort to ruin a program that has been teaching students and families about science and nature for 10+ years. The nestboxes were updated in 2018 as part of an Eagle Scout project. If you have any information regarding this event, contact Columbus Police Department at 614-645-4545, Report #190470278. Alternatively, contact the school at 614-450-5500. Please share far and wide.
