Singing Bird Center Improvements
The Pete Petersen Bird Room has been turned from a drab white room into an
outdoor paradise. The room has been painted in warm
colors—green and yellow walls, brown trim, and a sky blue ceiling.
The windows are dressed with colorful curtains.
Pictures of the room can be viewed on the Foundation’s Facebook page.
Many thanks to Patty and Jim Pearson for the many hours they spent in
transforming this room.
improvements have also been completed at the Center.
The floors have been refinished, the old bookshelves and credenza in front of
the kitchen serving window have been removed, and a new electrical panel has
been installed. Next up is rewiring of the entire building
and installation of ceiling fans. A list of building needs
and new projects will be coming soon. If you would like to
donate your time and talents please call the Hauberg Museum at 309-788-9536.
