Winter at the Lake is an annual event at Lake Dardanelle State Park. This year it was postponed from December to January 11, 2014, due to weather conditions. River Valley Master Naturalists (RVAMN) organized the activities at this event.
Attendees decorated edible tree ornaments for birds to snack on. They smeared peanut butter on pine cones and threaded grapes, banana slices and Chex Mix on a string. All to be put on a living tree at the park.
Thirty bluebird houses were assembled as a kit by RVAMN President Phil Wanzer so that kids of all ages could build the birdhouse with an old-fashioned screwdriver.
Seeing them build their own birdhouse is a sight to behold.
What makes this all worthwhile, is the pride you see in the kids’ faces after they have completed it.
We ended up having just enough birdhouses so everyone who wanted one, got one.
It was a fun time for all.
