10:00 AM to 11:30 PM

This is an event for children and families. As spring approaches, now is the time to put out a nest box to enhance nesting habitat for some local bird species. At our event we will be:


- lea


rning about the different kinds of nests that birds build, which kinds use nestboxes and why. - looking at a fantastic collection of nests that we can explore, examiningthe different materials that birds use for nestbuilding (some might surprise you!).


- We will also learn about what we need to do to be good nestbox stewards, because as a human-built structure we have a responsibility to keep our nestboxes free from parasites and other things that can be harmful to birds.


- building nestboxes (1 for each family) that can be brought home for use in your yard, or can be donated to be erected in a local part and maintained by the family (with our support of course).


- learning how to monitor nestbox use
