Floating Bird Nesting Platforms
HELP provides living raft floating bird nesting platforms with twenty or more tree seedlings that remain alive for up to ten years on the raft without maintenance summer or winter. The raft can be anchored year round in any water body such as a slough, dug-out, dam, and lagoon or tethered in the shallows of a river margin. Ideal for loons, blackbirds, select ducks and other birds that would typically nest in rushes or in and around riparian environments. Keeps birds and their nests safe from land-based predators. Also provides a beautiful aesthetic of a green tree seedling island and nest in town parks. Some folks use the same floating two square foot island of trees for indoors in schools, office or home in a basin of water in winter to provide greenery that keeps the winter blues at bay! Note: this product is part of the floating tree and plant system which is a patented technology (2014) of HELP’s lead researcher and founder Rodney Sidloski. This product is available at $150 per platform including the floating platform, established tree seedlings and tethering rope. A used cultivator shovel can be used as an effective anchor when used as a floating nest platform.
