Bringing life to the new bird blind

Members of the Morning Garden Club of Roswell are spending the next few weeks placing shrubs, vines and other plants around the new bird blind at the J. Kenneth Smith Bird Sanctuary and Nature Center, 401 N. Sycamore Ave. On Saturday morning, volunteers, from left, Dixie Summersgill, Renate Reisel and Dana Summersgill prepare to put in grapevine, salvia, Spanish broom, and sage, among other plants. Designed by architect Donald Daugherty and paid for by the Roswell Rotary Club and the J. Kenneth and Alice Smith Foundation, the bird blind is intended to give ornithologists as well as casual observers and students on field trips a better look at the 100 avian species that have been spotted at the nature center near the Nancy Lopez Golf Course at Spring River.
