Michigan Audubon Society invites you to build your own nest box at this interesting and informative work shop with Gene Wasserman from the Michigan Bluebird Society. Learn about cavity-dwelling birds such as Eastern Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, House Wrens, and Black-capped Chickadees in this hands-on workshop! Gene Wasserman will present the basics of being a responsible bird "landlord" and how to provide a safe nesting situation, through activities such as regular nest checks, maintenance, and predator guards. Learn how to record monitoring data and participate as a citizen scientist! Registered participants will each build one nest box, sized for Eastern Bluebirds, and will take this home. Limited quantities of additional "extras" may be available for purchase during the workshop, including poles, predator baffles, and/or House Sparrow deterrents. These extra items may be purchased during the workshop directly from Gene Wasserman's company, Woodcraft Kits, with cash or check only.
Registration is $30 for Michigan Audubon members and $35 for non-members. The workshop will take place at the Michigan Audubon office located at 2310 Science Parkway, Okemos, MI 48864.
