Maintenance at the Fairview Chimney Swift Tower

The Fairview Chimney Swift Tower

In 2009 and 2010 the Sassafras Audubon Society partnered with the Raymond Foundation to build a brick chimney swift tower to replace the big, old chimney that was razed when the old Fairview school was torn down. The tower proved to be a success with nearly 300 migrating chimney swifts using the chimney to roost during the first year of its existence.
