Happy little houses in Berlin

BERLIN

In an effort to increase the Bluebird population in Berlin, the Berlin Public Library and the town's Parks and Recreation Department have joined forces to offer a “Build a Bluebird House” program.

Participants will learn about bluebirds, build a house for the species for their yards and monitor all visits. Bird house materials will be supplied, but participants must bring a hammer and both Phillips and flat head screwdrivers. A detailed log of sightings will be posted in the library for viewing.

The program will be held over the next two Saturdays, Feb. 24 and March 3, from 10 a.m. to noon and is free to all Berlin families. The number of slots is limited, however. Anyone interested is urged to call the library at 978-838-2812 to reserve a spot.
