Make a Bird a Home *FULLY BOOKED*

It’s National Nest Box Week. And it’s Valentine’s Day! The perfect excuse to decorate a nest box for our feathered friends, as a gift for your loved one or to show your love for mother nature. Spring is just around the corner, so put up a nest box and who knows which love birds will take up residence.

Natural nest sites for birds such as holes in trees or old buildings are disappearing fast as gardens are ‘tidied’ and old houses are repaired. Taking part in NNBW gives you the chance to contribute to bird conservation whilst giving you the pleasure of observing any breeding birds that you attract to your nest box.

£8.00 per child / £5.00 low-income (price includes nest box). Family workshop for children of all ages.

This workshop must be booked in advance using our online ticketing system (see below).

Please provide ages of children and details of any allergies, medical conditions or additional needs in the ‘additional needs’ box when booking.
