Build a Better Bird House


Sunday, February 24, 2019, 2:00pm to 4:00pm


125 Arborway, Hunnewell Building, Boston

Learn how to build safe homes for native birds. This class covers best practices for general bird house design using the Arboretum's own nest boxes (for tree swallows, eastern bluebirds, black capped chickadees, and screech owls) as examples. You will learn tips for deterring predators and non-native competitors, as well as how to safely monitor young nestlings. Finally, you will build and take home your own "Chickadee Tube," a design suitable for many Boston yards. 

Fee: $28 member, $35 nonmember
