Bluebird house building workshop

Published 7:59 am Thursday, January 24, 2019

A bluebird house building workshop will be held Saturday, Feb. 9, from 10 a.m.-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. Prepare for the upcoming spring season, as bluebirds will soon be staking out their territories and choosing a home to raise their young. Learn about bluebird habitat and how to attract bluebirds to your yard, as well as how to maintain and predator-proof your houses. The house kits are made of high quality cedar and are ready to assemble. There will be some tools on hand, but feel free to bring your own Phillips head screwdriver. This is a great activity for the whole family; a parent or responsible adult should accompany children.

Pre-registration is required. There will be a limited number of kits available and couples/families may reserve a maximum of two kits. Registration may be made by contacting JoAnn Jones at (434) 547-9180 or
