Successful Backyard Birdhouses Workshop

Saturday, February 7th

12:00pm to 2:00pm

Ages 18 and Up

$10/members, $15/non-members

 

Building and installing a birdhouse is not as simple as it may seem. The location of your residence, the layout of your garden or patio, and the birdhouse’s design and size all factor into the habitability of a birdhouse. If you’d like to study the art of building birdhouses, come to the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy on Saturday, February 7th for an adult workshop led by Mike Azevedo, County Coordinator for Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society’s Cavity Nester Recovery Program. In addition to teaching the aspects of a successful birdhouse, Mike will share the efforts of the Audubon Society and others in the community to restore bird populations through cavity nesting programs. These programs establish special bird boxes throughout the wildlife corridors that run through San Jose—in backyards, parks, cemeteries, open space preserves, and even at the Guadalupe River Park! Check out this interview with Mike in Bay Nature.

 

This program takes place at the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy Visitor & Education Center, 438 Coleman Ave., San Jose. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. For more information call 408-298-7657.
