BLUEBIRD BASICS SET FOR JANUARY 13 AT THE LOUISIANA STATE ARBORETUM
VILLE PLATTE – Learn all about bluebirds and how to attract them to your backyard at a special program scheduled for Saturday, January 13 at the Louisiana State Arboretum in Ville Platte.
The program – Bluebird Basics – will begin at 1 pm and will provide tips and habitat suggestions to lure Eastern Bluebirds to your yard. Participants can then build their own bluebird house to take home with them for a fee of $15 per box. Supplies are limited, so pre-registration is recommended. There is no fee for the informative portion of the program.
The Louisiana State Arboretum is a 600-acre preservation area providing 5.5 miles of hiking trails amid some of Louisiana’s most magnificent trees. Nature programs on varying subjects from wildlife gardening to birdwatching are offered throughout the year, and for groups of 10 or more by request. The Arboretum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $3 per person to enter Chicot State Park. Once inside Chicot, the Arboretum is free.
