New Albany Garden Club hosting recycled birdhouse project

The New Albany Garden Club is encouraging students in New Albany and Union County schools, grades K-12, to participate in a recycling project to build a birdhouse.

 The students are encouraged to use recycled materials such as plastic, aluminum, or wood to build a birdhouse.

The students’ birdhouses will need to be delivered for display to the Union County Heritage Museum Thursday, Sept. 23 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The birdhouses will be judged by New Albany Garden Club members and Felder Rushing, Tallahatchie RiverFest’s featured literary speaker at the William Faulkner Literary Festival.

 The birdhouses will then be displayed at the Magnolia Civic Center during the Literary Festival on Friday, Sept.r 24, 2010.
