Birdhouses available

To the Editor:

Martin County Conservation Club thanks Five Lakes Centre for the use of its facility, Martin County Soil Conservation District for help with the information program, McDonald’s for the beverages, and all the volunteer help for our annual birdhouse building seminar on March 16.

This year, about 90 kids participated in building 115 wren houses and 40 bluebird houses. They take the houses home and install them to help them learn more about nature and increase songbird nesting success.

We will give away birdhouses from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at our park on the south end of North Silver Lake.
