Bluebirds and Blossoms Art Project
January 23-February 10, 2023
The Big Haynes Creek Nature Center is hosting a Birds & Blossoms
auxiliary event for the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival. At this event, local troops of the Girl Scouts of America are taking on the task of uniquely decorating bluebird boxes that will later be installed at the Big Haynes Creek Nature Center to form a Bluebird Trail. The finished artwork and participants will be recognized during the March 25-26 weekend at the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival.

Throughout the month of March, be on the lookout for paper "blossoms" along the trees, bushes and other structures along the trails while hiking any areas of the Big Haynes Creek Nature Center, located at the Georgia International Horse Park. These "blossoms" will be hiding each week with the goal to have various visitors find them to trade them in for a timeless nature-inspired treasure commissioned by Glass Creations by Jennifer Drake, one of the Featured Artists within the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival.
Visitors who find a "blossom" should take a selfie with it and tag Big Haynes Creek Nature Center with #BHCNC, #Bloomingoodtime, and #TreastruesintheTrees. They are also welcome to stop into the Administration Office at the Georgia International Horse Park (located just across the road from Big Haynes Creek Nature Center) to get a free parking pass to the festival. Treasure finders can then bring the petal to the Information Booth at the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival on March 25 or 26 to collect their beautiful festival keepsake. So, look up, look down, look all around...and find treasures that await!
