Come Saturday, March 3rd, to build a home for one of the most charismatic creatures in the Iowa skies. Following a short presentation on the recovery of bluebirds, all participants will build and take home a completed bluebird box. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult during this fun family activity.

The Osborne Center monitors over eighty bluebird houses. This information helps document the bluebird population throughout the county. Nest boxes have played a crucial role in the recovery of Eastern Bluebirds. A special thank you goes to Don Dunbar for helping supply materials and instruction for this workshop.
