Birdhouse Build Project a Success!

Tuesday, October 10th found the Weaverville Town Hall Community Room a buzz with over 20 members of the Garden Club of Weaverville welding screw guns and hammers to make birdhouses for the Main Street Nature Park in Weaverville.  A joint venture with the Weaverville Lowe’s which donated the materials, the Garden Club took on this community service project as their October program.

We had tons of fun, learned some new skills and built 24 houses for our featherd friends.  Two wren and four bluebird houses were donated to the Nature Park and will be installed soon.  The Make & Take birdhouse option brought in $180 which was also donated to the Nature Park.

The Garden Club of Weaverville is a co-ed non-profit open to everyone.  Our meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Weaverville Town Hall Community Room at 9:30 AM.  Check our website for information about upcoming programs and events: gardenclubofweaverville.org.

Build Birdhouses for the Main Street Nature Park – October 10, 2017 – 9:30 A.M.

Wren and bluebird house for the Main Street Nature Park

The Garden Club of Weaverville partners with the Weaverville Lowes to build birdhouses for the Main Street Nature Park in downtown Weaverville. Thanks to the support of Lowe’s Store Manager, Mike Finnegan, Lowe’s is donating the materials to make several bluebird and wren houses as a Garden Club community service project.

“Adding birdhouses to the Nature Park creates focused habitat and encourages the birds we want to nest and bear offspring in places we can see,” says Randy Burroughs, a landscape architect involved with the park’s development from the beginning and the creator of the walnut benches in the Park.

After Randy’s brief overview about the benefits of the birdhouses to the wildlife in the Nature Park and for park visitors alike, members will hammer away and build the houses.

Working in teams of 2-3, participants will follow easy step by step written instructions and assemble the wooden houses from pre-cut pieces with the help of an instructor.

Members need to bring:

  • Power screwdriver with a Philips head
  • Work gloves
Decorate a birdhouse to add year round color to your landscape.

Make & Take Birdhouse ~ $10
Members also have the option to make a birdhouse and take it home and decorate for $10.  You must order a birdhouse by Monday, September 25th.  The proceeds from this will be donated to the Nature Park.  Bring cash or make a check out to:  Town of Weaverville

Contact Ruth Planey to order a Make & Take Birdhouse.  Be sure to say how many bluebird and wren houses you want to purchase.  Ruth Planey 828-658-4151 or rs03nc@gmail.com
