Garden Spot Village in New Holland will host its Annual Bird House Display and Silent Auction. The annual event will include presentation by bluebird expert on Feb. 27.

Through February 28 the Indoor Park in the Village Square at Garden Spot Village will be filled with colorful birdhouses and bird-themed crafts and quilted items. This annual event includes a silent auction to benefit the Garden Spot Village Benevolent Fund.

In addition, Dr. Dean Rust, president of the Bluebird Society of Pennsylvania, will present “The Ecology and Management of the Eastern Bluebird” on Feb. 27 at 2 p.m. in the Chapel. Following the presentation Dr. Rust will be available for a meet-and-greet in the Indoor Park.

Dr. Rust is an active member of North American Bluebird Society. He maintains bluebird trails in Lancaster, York and Chester Counties and was awarded the BSP’s “Blue Feather Award” in 2012. Dr. Rust is also the author of “The Beloved and Charismatic Bluebird.”

The Benevolent Fund helps Garden Spot Village residents, who for reasons beyond their control have exhausted their financial resources.
