Osoyoos Desert Centre hosting hands-on bluebird nest box building workshop to teach more on the local population

Learn about local bluebirds

Now is your chance to be a part of the bluebird success story of conservation and citizen science with the Osoyoos Desert Centre's hands-on bluebird nest box building workshop.

The workshop includes step-by-step instructions to build your own take-home nest box and gives participants education on bluebird ecology. The focus is on the life cycle and the recovery of declining populations, as well as how to install your nest box and monitor it for eggs and fledglings.

The Bluebird Nest Box Building Workshop runs on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is open to family members of all ages and participants may work to build their nest boxes as a team or on their own.

All materials will be provided. Participants are asked to please bring a Robertson #2 electric drill/screwdriver.

After the workshop, there will be an option to tour our brand new 1.5 km boardwalk and interpretive building at the centre.

Registration is required and limited space is available. The fee is $20 per box.
