Wonderful Day! Build a Bluebird Nest Box: Blackwater Falls

July 6 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

A fun class with a purpose is planned at Blackwater Falls State Park, July 6, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at the Blackwater Falls lodge. Build a Bluebird Nest Box is led by master naturalist, Sam Muncy.

Make your own bluebird nesting box from a precut kit to take home. Participants will use a screw driver and wood screws to assemble boxes together. Instructor Sam Muncy will assist with assembly as needed. A template and instructions for cutting and making more boxes is part of the program and how to attract bluebirds. There is no charge to make a bluebird nesting box. Plan on two hours for this workshop and learning experience.

Muncy’s powerpoint presentation of bluebird sightings across West Virginia is a treat and can include your photos. If you have blue bird photograph(s) send them digitally to instructor sam@samandsharonenterprises.com Briefly describe your photograph(s) with the images sent and share your bluebird interest during the class.
