Nature’s Nursery’s third annual Battle of the Birdhouses returns

Nature’s Nursery’s annual Battle of the Birdhouses is back. The event, which raises funds for local wildlife, gives individuals or teams the opportunity to build the coolest birdhouse on the auction block. With just a few requirements to work around, the sky is the limit. All birdhouses will be auctioned online and the one that sells for the highest price wins $500 from GenoaBank. Completed birdhouses are due by Oct. 3 at GenoaBank on Conant Street in Maumee.

Each year, Nature’s Nursery admits over 3,700 sick, injured, and orphaned native wild animals for care and also helps hundreds more remain in their wild habitats. As a nonprofit, funded completely by donations, Nature’s Nursery and its staff invites members of the community to get hands-on and help out.


“Battle Of The Birdhouses was first launched in 2020 with over 25 birdhouses entered and over $3,500 raised for wildlife rehab,” said Allison Schroeder, Nature’s Nursery executive director. “It’s become one of our annual fundraisers that people really look forward to. It’s fun to see the creative birdhouses that people build and the ideas that they come up with.”
