Nest Box and Bird Feeder Workshop

Join the Scottish Wildlife Trust at the Falls of Clyde and make a nest box & bird feeder to take home for your garden!

Nest Box and Bird Feeder Workshop

About Nest Box and Bird Feeder Workshop

It’s National Nest Box Week (14-21 Feb)! Come and join us making a nest box and bird feeder to take home for your garden birds. Learn about the different birds that will visit your garden and find out what they like to eat.

Please note –

The nest box pictured is a slightly different design to the ones we will be making on the day. We will have packs ready to put together.
Adults will need to be comfortable using hand tools (hammer, screwdriver, nails, etc.) and will need to help their children in making the nest box and bird feeder.
The workshops will be indoors and the activities will take place on the floor of our education room, we have foam mats and cushions available to kneel on and seating is available around the room.
For every two children their must be at least one adult supervising.
Suitable for over 6 years only.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nest Box and Bird Feeder Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
