Blue Hill Public Library
Kids are invited to learn about creating bird habitat at the Blue Hill Public Library on Wednesday, August 22nd from 10:00 AM to noon. Lee Lee Leonard, from the Seed Barn in Blue Hill, will show kids how to use natural materials found on site to weave sculptures that will serve as winter shelter for birds and wildlife. Participants will also learn about reintroducing native plants and their value for birds. They will even learn how to mimic bird digestion to sow fruit seeds that are normally dispersed by fruit-eating animals. The program will be hosted by Julianne Taylor, education coordinator for Explore Outdoors! – a collaboration between Blue Hill Heritage Trust, Downeast Audubon and Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust.
This project is the last in a series of five “Conservation Kids” projects by the library that are intended to engage youth volunteers to positively impact the environment and community on the Blue Hill Peninsula. The projects are designed to teach kids proactive steps they can take to make a difference in helping to preserve the natural world around them. These programs are made possible by a grant from the Davis Conservation Foundation. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
