Heart For the Birds by Josh Coulas

For the Birds is a fundraiser created for The Toronto Botanical Garden, a birdhouse competition to design and construct birdhouses that promote nesting and provide shelter for migrating birds. That's Josh Coulas' Heart entry for Bluebirds above. More after the jump.

The For the Birds fundraiser has been created for the Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) to:
* Bring attention to the ongoing mandate of the TBG to promote environmental awareness through education
* Support TBG fundraising efforts
* Inspire the community to become aware of the plight of songbirds due to environmental degradation
* Promote a message of wildlife preservation, ecological awareness and sustainability
* Jumpstart the TBG long term vision of extending it's influence beyond the local site
* Educate visitors to TBG on principles of bird nesting, habitat and support.
