This is an example of the towers Kraus-Anderson has built at other school sites. The tower simulates the chimneys that are the natural habitat of the birds that have dwindled in population in recent years, according to Audubon Minnesota.

Chimney swift houses to go up at two schools

Email

The population of chimney swifts will get a boost from two birdhouses going up at District 833 elementary schools this summer.

Construction company Kraus-Anderson has joined Audubon Minnesota to provide homes for the birds.

This summer, while Hillside and Newport elementary schools are getting new heating and cooling systems, swift houses will be built at no cost to the district.
