Build A Blue Bird House At The Wildlife Refuge

Photo by Jean Owens

Saturday, March 4th at 1:00 pm at the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, 1371 Wildlife Drive in Springville, the Refuge is hosting a program about the Eastern Bluebird. Mitz and LoraAnn Bailey will present a program about this amazing bird and it's historic comeback. Part of the program includes building your own bluebird box, with instructions on how to use this box to attract bluebirds to your backyard. For those that would like, we invite you to stay and help the refuge install a bluebird trail along Wildlife Drive. This program and entrance to the Refuge Visitor Center are always free. We hope you and your family can join us!
