Bluebird Grant Workshop May 24th 2022

Seventeen of us had a great morning at the Community Garden at Snellville learning how to make predator guards for bluebird houses.  These guards prevent raccoons, squirrels, and snakes from reaching the nests.  Terry Dempsey (GPLT) and Carol Hassell (GCMGA & GPLT) let the teaching and all of us shared in the different parts of building these guards.  This year’s grant was part two of raising awareness of the importance – and enjoyment – of having bluebirds in our environment.  The houses were built last year in July.  The Community Garden received a second bluebird house and it was installed today by Wes Nettleton and Martha Whitman.  Other houses are going to other community gardens, butterfly gardens, parks and schools.
