Step Outside Day @ Sherburne WMA Complex

Happy Monday Morning ! And today I am blogging about a local family event held this last weekend:

So let’s take a trip down the river to our neighboring town of Krotz Springs and Enjoy :

The Sherburne Complex is a joint land management venture of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that began in 1983. The area consists of 44,000 acres, and is managed by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries

A place to Learn about the wildlife of the area.

Kids Kit Project: $2 Birdhouse

Free plans to build a birdhouse from

1 – 5 1/2″ x 1/2″ thick cedar fence picket (I used the dogeared 72″ long ones)
1 1/4″ finish nails
Glue suitable for cedar

 Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck! To download the PDF plans and see the original post :
