Thanks for spending time on the Jerry Russell Trail!

A Bounty of Birdhouses

The north end of the Jerry Russell Trail is home to many unique birdhouses which are home to many types of birds. Many of these birdhouses were made and generously donated by Jonesville business owner and resident Mike Fast (1940 - 2018). The effort to display the birdhouses was led by Jonesville resident and Rotarian Ray Leising. 

The many beautiful and unique birdhouses are scattered up and down both sides of the trail. Please walk the trail and look for them to see if you can locate them all!  As more are continuously being added to the trail, visit this website or scan the QR code on the trail sign for the current number of birdhouses along the trail.

Thank You!
