Ogden Nature Center¹s 17th Annual Birdhouse Contest and Exhibit is "For the Birds."

Start building! Nature lovers, craftspeople, artist, designers and others who give a hoot about birds are invited to enter their hand crafted birdhouses in the 17th Annual Birdhouse Competition and Exhibit. Entries will be received Monday, March 29 through Saturday, April 3 at the Ogden Nature Center. All ages are encouraged to enter up to two creations, and there is no entry fee.

Stoke you creativity and bring in your finest birdhouse ­ whimsical, beautiful, practical, functional, artistic or magical. Please be sure your birdhouse can last through the summer weather. The exhibit will be on display outdoors April 15 through August 31, 2010 so visitors to the Nature Center can enjoy and be inspired by these backyard habitats.

All birdhouses must be on a post and ready to "plant." Entries must be original works and will be judged by an interdisciplinary jury. Winners will receive cash awards at a reception and award presentation on Wednesday, April 14 at 5:30 pm.

The exhibit¹s main sponsors are the Utah Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Registration forms and full details are available online at  or at the Ogden Nature Center¹s Visitor Center, 966 W. 12th Street, Ogden, UT 84404.

For more information, please call the Ogden Nature Center at 801-621-7595.
