Join the Geauga Park District for a bluebird program-workshop combo at The Rookery just in time for spring!
If you enjoy the sight of Eastern Bluebirds in Northeast Ohio, we have a day of happiness waiting for you at The Rookery’s Great Blue Heron Lodge on Saturday, March 16th.
First, kick off your spring nesting season and learn how to Become a Better Bluebird Landlord from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Naturalist Tami Gingrich will present an overview of the natural history of the Eastern Bluebird and answer questions about how to attract them. Tami has been in charge of the park’s bluebird boxes for more than 25 years and knows all kinds of tips, including where and how to place a box, what other species could potentially move in, and how to keep your nesters safe. (Note: You need not attend the bluebird workshop that follows just because you are attending this. Attend one or the other, or both!)
Then, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., registration is required to participate in Make a Bluebird House, where you’ll create a hospitable bird house that you can then take home for placement – all for just $10!
As early as March, bluebirds begin searching for a place to nest. They will readily accept man-made boxes put out for them, but it is important to know that you must monitor your boxes in order for your bluebirds to be successful.
Register for Make a Bluebird House at www.geaugaparkdistrict.org or 440-286-9516, which may also be called with questions. Participants should register “per house” rather than “per person.” Due to limited boxes, one box per family, please! The Rookery, located at 10110 Cedar Road in Munson Township, is fully wheelchair/stroller accessible.
