Nestbox Building Outdoor Workshop at Greenwich Audubon Center

Nestbox Building Outdoor Workshop

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join Greenwich Audubon Center for a fun in-person program to learn about ways to support birds at home with nestboxes! Tree-cavity nesting birds such as Eastern Bluebirds depend on nestboxes to survive, as it has become increasingly difficult for them to find natural tree cavities in the wild. Other birds that love nestboxes include Tree Swallows, Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, and House Wrens. After a slide-show presentation, you will have the opportunity to build your very own nest box kit with the assistance of Audubon staff! Kits must be purchased with ticket registration in advance and will be given out at the program. Hammers & Screwdrivers will be available for use but they recommend bringing your own Hammer & Philip’s Head Screwdriver if you have them. This IN-PERSON program has a LIMITED capacity of participants and will be held entirely outdoors. All participants are required to wear a face mask covering for the duration of the program. TICKETS ALONG WITH KITS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE through the online ticket sales page. There will be no ticket sales at the door the day of the program. Please be prepared to show proof of your ticket registration, either as a printed copy of your registration receipt or your registration confirmation email on your phone. The buildings and facilities are still closed to the public, so please plan accordingly as the restrooms will not be available. Recommended for ages 6 and up. Meet in the parking lot at the start of the program. Please ensure everyone in your party is wearing a face mask. For questions, please contact Ryan MacLean at Ryan.MacLean@audubon.org or 203-930-1353.
