Build a Kestrel Box
May 6, 2017
8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Adult + Youth Basic Woodworking Skills Series: Build a Kestrel Box
In this service class, we are partnering with the Friends of Sax-Zim Bog to provide an opportunity for adults to work with a child/grandchild/mentee/friend to build an American kestrel nesting box that will be used by researchers in the Sax-Zim area.
You will learn basic woodworking techniques of sawing wood, drilling, fasteners, nailing, and so much more. We will take rough cut wood, cut it to size, drill holes for nails and the entrance hole, and assemble the nest box. Note: the boxes we build are being donated to the Friends of the Sax-Zim Bog for American kestrel research.
Instruction and all materials. One registration is for one adult and one youth.
No prior experienced required
Best for Ages…
This class is intended for adults and kids. You (the adult) should be able to determine if your kid has the appropriate development skills to be able to swing a hammer, drill holes, and saw wood, AND/OR to be able to take direction and learn these skills.
You should bring…
Bring a hammer, a handsaw, and a cordless drill, if you have them (we’ll have enough for everyone, if you don’t). Bring hearing and eye protection (we have disposable earplugs).
