Chimney Swift Tower
The NRV Bird Club was one of many community partners to pledge funds to build a chimney swift tower to replace a 1950s era chimney at McHarg Elementary School in Radford that hosted an annual nesting colony of this declining migratory species. Your dues help support these and other conservation projects across Virginia.
