Birdhouses

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? Our Birdhouse Workshop is 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.
