Want to help the birds in your backyard? Join Bays Mountain Park for a bird box workshop this January and February.
Spring will arrive in our area before we know it, and with the warmer weather, nature comes alive again. As the season turns, many birds will migrate through East Tennessee—and some will even call it home.
These birds will need somewhere to live, though. Most birds have specific nesting requirements that need to be met, and many experience a shortage of ideal nesting conditions. That’s where you come in! You can support nesting birds in our area by crafting a bird box where they can raise a family in your own backyard.
Bays Mountain Park will have two bird box workshops focusing on two species of local birds. On January 12, you can build a home for the Eastern Bluebird. February 16’s bird boxes are suited for Wrens. Each workshop begins at 3 p.m. and lasts about an hour.
The workshops are $25 per box, and pre-registration is required. Please visit baysmountain.com for registration links. For more information, call 423-229-9447.
