Local scout constructs handmade birdhouses for Dyersburg Manor residents

Tuesday, July 10, 2018
On June 1, Dyer County High School student and member of Boy Scout Troop 386, Justin Revell, presented residents and staff of Dyersburg Manor with 10 handmade bird feeders. A member of Troop 386, Revell decided to take on the project in order to earn his Eagle Scout badge. Materials for the project were donated by Lowe’s, as well as members of Revell’s family. Assisting Revell in the construction of the birdhouses were fellow scouts, leaders and family members. All wood used to make the birdhouses was sealed to ensure they would last for years to come. The birdhouses were placed outside the windows of rooms so residents would have an opportunity to watch the birds. Pictured left is one of 10 birdhouses handmade by Troop 386 member, Justin Revell. Pictured right, Revell (R) and fellow scout, Caleb Glozier (L), are seen putting up birdhouses at Dyersburg Manor.
