 Wednesday, April 15th, at 6pm in the Library.

This program includes bluebirds, other birds that nest in bluebird boxes, nest box management, and more. The focus definitely is on bluebirds, but the speaker, John also shares his passion for the natural world in hopes the audience will take in some broader and deeper messages about nature – and life. The program has variety, feeling, and is thought provoking. Sprinkled throughout are just a few wildflowers, butterflies, and quotes by some of the great naturalists of the past. With beautiful photographs, sounds, and a sincere, enthusiastic presentation style, this program is of interest to anyone who appreciates nature.
