There are a myriad of measures than can be taken to promote sustainability, from putting up bird houses to reducing water usage. Learn what Skidaway Audubon is doing at an afternoon panel discussion and birdhouse sale on Wednesday, May 4. The free event, open to all, will run from 4 to 5 p.m. at Messiah Lutheran Church (1 West Ridge Road).

Sustainability and Skidaway Audubon: Water to Wings, and Baby Turtles to Bats, will feature presentations by Audubon Terrapin Rescue Project Chair Carolyn McInerney, Bird Cam and Weather/Water Monitoring Chair Rick Cunningham, Bottle Brigade Project Chair Lewis Perdue, Bat Abodes Project Chair Randy Hatch, and Sustainable Skidaway Project Chair Diane Thompson.

Each Chair will present a seven-minute update on their project as it relates to sustainability. A question-and-answer session will follow. In addition, Audubon will be selling beautiful birdhouses generously donated by Landings resident Bobbie Boyce who crafted them from teak wood donated by Release Marine & Marine Tables of Savannah, which specializes in custom-made sport fishing gear and yacht furniture. The birdhouses will be on display and available for purchase by check or cash.

In addition to the birdhouses, Melissa O’Brien’s hand-painted oyster shells also will be on sale, with profits benefiting Skidaway Audubon, along with a map of the island’s historic sites and a fold-out guide to birding on Skidaway Island. Additional items available on May 4 include Tierney Monahan's engaging book about some unexpected interrelationships between people and bees. The afternoon also will include a few fun, free raffles.
