Nest Box Workshop

Come explore the life of a cavity nesting bird and discover what all the chirping is about! Students will become familiar with some common backyard birds, learn about their nesting habitats, and find out different ways to identify them. Construction of a nest box for their own yards will allow students to continue their learning and make further observations at home. All supplies are included.
