Birdhouses will help raise awareness of the challenges facing local and global bird populations. Educational fact sheets regarding birds and their environment will be attached to each birdhouse. Approximately fifty birdhouses will be on display on Silver Spring in early May and at Whitefish Bay’s Green Day in the Bay in Cahill Park on Saturday, May 2nd which also recognizes International Migratory Bird Day. A “wine and stroll” auction event on Silver Spring will be held in conjunction with the project on Thursday, May 7th.
The Whitefish Bay Community Birdhouse Art Project is co-sponsored by the Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation, the Whitefish Bay Garden Club, and the Whitefish Bay Business Improvement District. Birdhouses will be made available for purchase via silent auction and proceeds will help support activities of the Civic Foundation and Garden Club.
