Learn about ways to encourage and feed wintering birds in your backyard at the “Feed the Birds” event presented by the Southlake Historical Society on Sunday, December 1 at 1 p.m. at the Southlake Log House.
Children will have a chance to make their very own bird “treat” to take home while enjoying the scenery of a replica home built in the 1850s where prominent families dwelled. The new structure, built-in 2008, is made from three log structures; wall logs are post oak, as are the rafters and shingles. It also has a stone fireplace and bois d’arc mantle.
The house sits on a historically significant spot located behind Bunker Hill; which was once considered the highest point in the area. It was eventually lowered when Bicentennial Park was built.
The “Feed the Birds” event is free, but registration is required. Please register at www.SouthlakeHistory.org. The Southlake Log House is located at located under the water tower at the White Chapel Boulevard, entrance to Bicentennial Park. For more information email us at www.southlakehistory.com.
