ABG’s Winter Workshop: Making Birch Birdhouses – Cancelled
December 13, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$20 - $25
Due to low RSVP, our birdhouse building class has been cancelled. We will reschedule another workshop in early 2015. Please stay posted on our website at www.alaskabg.org/events.
Join Mike Monterusso, Gardens and Facilities Manager at ABG, to learn how to make beautiful handmade birch log birdhouses for chickadees and nuthatches, a perfect holiday gift! Research shows that birds prefer round, natural-looking birdhouses over traditional square ones. During this workshop, Mike will teach you about the logic behind the design of each feature and show how the various parts are assembled to make the finished product. You’ll also learn how to hang the birdhouse and how to perform yearly maintenance to attract birds year after year.
Workshop is $20 ABG members/$25 non-members. Birdhouse materials kits are available for $50 which include all supplies to make your own birdhouse at home. Please let us know in advance of the workshop if you would like to purchase a materials kit. Completed birdhouses are also available for $80.
Saturday, December 13th
1:00 to 3:00 pm
There will be a 10 person limit for this workshop.
