Attracting Bluebirds

We here at Around Ambler are avid bird watchers and our area is abundant with various species of birds throughout the year. Before you know it, spring will be here and with it, a whole plethora of awesome birding opportunities and the Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association is here to help you attract one of the prettiest.

On Thursday, February 9th, at 7 pm, join the WVWA as they offer a class in attracting Bluebirds.

From the WVWA website:

Betsy Nutt, Penn State Master Gardener and member of the Bluebird Society of Pennsylvania’s speaker’s bureau will give a talk on the history, biology, necessary habitat, protecting and monitoring of the bluebird. Included will be a discussion of the requirements for a bluebird nesting box, and woodworking plans will be available. Emphasis will also be made on the importance of native plantings in our gardens. There will be number of handouts to reinforce the class discussion.

Registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided. The WVWA Headquarters is located a Four Mills Barn, 12 Morris Road in Ambler.
