Bird house event went well

To the Editor:

Martin County Conservation Club held another successful birdhouse seminar March 29 with a 100 kids building 100 wren houses and 50 nesting shelves.

This concludes another winter’s effort by club members to cut out and paint parts from salvaged building material. While preparation takes time, it was all worth it to see so many club members help so many youngsters assemble habitat for songbirds.

Our house materials were donated by many local landowners and contractors over the years such as Ryan Lunn Construction, Whitmore Painting and Decorating, and S & S Painting.

This year’s donors were Hertzke Construction, Biosecure Air Inc., Adam Willner and McDonald’s.

We got paint from the county’s recycling program.

Five Lakes Centre’s director and staff have provided us with space and tables for many years.

Thanks to all who helped.
