Upcoming Classes

Build a Birdhouse Workshop

Treat your backyard buddies to a castle of their own. In this class, attendees will spend roughly two hours learning how to construct a birdhouse to attract some of their favorite backyard feathered friends. Each attendee will leave with one birdhouse and the basic skills to construct more at their own home. 

Not only are birdhouses fun to watch but also they can attract beneficial birds which help deal with different backyard pests such as mosquitos. Birdhouses create a warm, safe place for birds and when birds have a safe place to live, their numbers stay strong and their species continues to evolve.

The cost for the class is $40 per person and each guest will be able to choose from various birdhouse designs.
