Making Birdhouses

July 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The usual material for birdhouses is wood. But how do we create a birdhouse from other materials? How about materials we don’t need anymore, such as CD jewel cases, VHS tapes and floppy disks? Teaching artists from the Center for Creative Reuse will teach kids all about constructing bird abodes out of obsolete media. We learn about birds’ natural preferences and threats to their habitats. Then we learn about how to take apart old media and which parts are good to reuse. Participants learn simple construction techniques to make sturdy, reuse-y homes. This program is for ages 7-12. Registration is required. 

This program has been made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Library.
