Gardens throughout Nevada County will be safer after Julie Bair’s fifth grade class at Seven Hills Middle School created scarecrows on Thursday.

The annual “Scarecrow For Heifers” service learning project, a benefit for Heifer International, supports families in need by providing live animals and helping families toward self-reliance.

Animals provide milk, wool, transportation and a source of income.



The students gathered materials and designed each handcrafted scarecrow.

“The scarecrows built by the students can make a big difference in the lives of families, and that is the most important aspect of the project,” said Bair.




Prospector’s Nursery in Nevada City is selling the scarecrows for $40 each and giving 100 percent of the proceeds back to the class.

The students will vote on which animals to purchase.

Scarecrows For Heifers received generous donations of materials from B & C True Value (lumber), Pearson’s Feed (hay) and Ridge Feed and Supply (burlap sacks) in Grass Valley.
