It is an honor to nominate Larry Bennett for the WEAU Sunshine Award. Since volunteering, Larry has created 2,500 bluebird nest box kits that have been enjoyed by our city and beyond. By mentoring the community in the construction of nest boxes and importance of restoring our songbirds, Larry has positively impacted the health of our local ecosystems.
He travels all over Wisconsin to give Bluebird Programs and build nest boxes. Larry taught me that a nest box isn't just a box left to be ignored. A nest box needs care and monitoring as each one can bring magic to our community. This summer he has been helping our organization by donating his time and expertise in order to educate our young students. What a message to pass forward!
Larry has been instrumental in the success of the Bluebird Restoration Project. He has also become a trusted friend though our time together. He brings sunshine to so many! We are lucky to have a man like Larry Bennett right next door.
