birdhouse-building.jpgChildren will have a chance to put together bird houses for use in Catawba College's Fred Stanback Jr. Ecological Preserve during two upcoming Friday Nights Out in Downtown Salisbury. Thanks to the efforts of Catawba College senior Eli Wittum, these bird houses will be placed in the Preserve and be mapped so the children who assemble them and their families can see the benefits of their efforts.

Wittum's fellow Catawba student, Colleen Smiley, a National Wildlife Federation Fellow, will also be on hand for both Friday Night Outs, offering children a chance to make craft bird feeders for them to take home.

Wittum, an Environmental Science major, and his peers will be on hand between 5 and 8 p.m. Friday, April 3 in front of Downtown Catawba's storefront located at 100 W. Innes Street in the Plaza Building, Suite 103. Wittum will have donated and pre-cut bird house materials available for interested children and their families to assemble. He will also provide literature to these children and families about the hazards of littering on birds of prey and renesting hatchlings.
