It’s for the Birds Workshop

July 14, 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT

It’s for the Birds Workshop
Crafting Houses Out of Gourds

Cost is $30 ($20 for Members)

Why do birds use birdhouses? They are looking for cavities to build their nests! Birds that prefer cavities often thrive in a gourd birdhouse. Purple Martins are a prime example of this.

Create your own unique birdhouse gourd! Join Wisteria Perry, manager of interpretation and community outreach, and learn how to transform a precut and craft-ready gourd into a birdhouse. Decorating materials will include wood burning, alcohol inks, oil pastel coloring pencils, watercolor pencils, markers, acrylic paints and more.
