Nestbox Workshop

June 20, 2020

Register

Join Greenwich Audubon Center for a fun online 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. We hope you will join us to learn about how to provide safe places for birds to build their nests!

Nestbox Kit Availability: In addition to the program itself, we will also provide you with guidance about how to purchase nestbox kits or pre-assembled nestboxes in advance of the program. We have some nestbox kits available on a first-come, first-serve, basis (for curbside pickup or shipped within a limited area). Available kits may be purchased when you register for the program.

  • Program Fee: $10 (does not include the price of nestbox kits)
  • Pre-registration is required. Select here to register.
  • For questions, please contact Ryan MacLean at Ryan.MacLean@audubon.org or 203-930-1353.
  • Upon registering, you will receive a link and password to access this event on Zoom.

Please note, by signing up for this event you are consenting to receive emails from Audubon about this program and our conservation work. You may opt-out of our emails at any time.
