A Bluebird House Building Workshop will be held Saturday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. until noon at the Bear Creek Hall in Bear Creek Lake State Park, Cumberland County.

This annual community event is co-sponsored by Bear Creek Lake State Park and Central Piedmont Virginia Master Naturalists. According to a press release, the workshop will help attendees prepare for the upcoming spring season, as bluebirds will soon be staking out their territories and choosing a home to raise their young.

“You will learn about bluebird habitat and how to attract bluebirds to your yard, as well as how to maintain and predator-proof your houses,” officials said in the release. “The house kits are made of high quality cedar and are ready to assemble.”
