Tennessee Birdhouses for Our Feathered Friends

birdhouse, Tennessee

Our feathered friends now have stately places to call home.

Flocking to more than a dozen state parks are birdhouses featuring local license plates as roofs. These Tennessee-inspired birdhouses are made by From the Heart of Tennessee, a program sponsored by the state’s Division of Intellectual Disabilities Services that serves as a creative outlet for Tennesseans with developmental disabilities. Proceeds from the birdhouses then go back to help fund the program.

So far, the license plates featured include the state flag, the University of Tennessee, Lady Volunteers and state parks. To purchase a birdhouse, visit a participating park (Montgomery Bell State Park, Natchez Trace State Park or Fall Creek Falls State Park), email Gary.Smith@state.tn.us or call 901-745-7673.
