Bluebird house building Aug. 9 at Lake Macbride Main Lodge

SOLON– The public is invited to join Lake Macbride seasonal staff in building bluebird houses. The event on Tuesday, Aug. 9, from 5 until 8 p.m. at Lake Macbride Park’s Main Lodge, is open to people of all ages.
Bluebird habitats in Iowa have been greatly impacted by development and tree removal. Man-made birdhouses placed in proper locations can provide adequate shelter for these beautiful native birds. Come to Lake Macbride State Park on Aug. 9 to construct a bluebird house and learn where the houses will be placed inside the park. Later, return to the park to see if birds have occupied the new homes.
The event is free and will be held rain or shine. Families are welcome but children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult of age 18 or older.
