BEAVERCREEK — The public is invited to attend the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association’s Bluebird Workshop 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 31.

Participants will meet in Beavercreek Fire Station #1 Meeting Room, 2195 Dayton-Xenia Road. Attendees will then learn about eastern bluebirds and other cavity-nesting birds and how to help them as they face the loss of nesting habitat, harsh winters, pesticides and competition from non-native species. Learn how to monitor nest boxes, share data and cultivate plants that help bluebirds. Workshop is free, but RSVP is required.

Those who are participating in this workshop may pre-order a complete Bluebird Nest Box Kit that includes nest box, pole, and baffle for $35. Preorders must be received by Jan. 22.

Individuals may register for the workshop through the homepage of BCWA’s website or, if prefered, may RSVP by contacting the BCWA office at 937-320-9042.
