Registration is now open for the Marshall County Conservation Board's "Woodworking for Wildlife" program which will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Feb.16 at the Grimes Farm & Conservation Center, 2359 233rd St. just west of Marshalltown. Individuals and families may build a house for wrens or bluebirds to take home.
Participants will be able to build a house of their choice, but need to pre-register so materials can be prepared. Those interested should call 641-752-5490 by Feb. 13 to register and specify which type of house they are interested in building. Space is limited. Donations for materials will be accepted. Participants should bring a hammer.
MCCB Director Mike Stegmann said, "This will be a great way to think spring. Now is the time to get houses ready for the birds which will be returning soon."
