The Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project is hosting two workshops in Gibsons to enable community members to build their own mason bee homes, bat houses, or owl, duck, or swallow nest boxes from easy-to-assemble kits.
Wildlife workshops will take place on Saturday, March 23 (noon to 3 p.m.) at Eric Cardinall Hall and on Sunday, March 24 at Frank West Hall (3:30 to 6:30 p.m.). Community members can drop by any time during these events to build a box or chat about local wildlife species and learn how to get involved in habitat stewardship and monitoring activities. Nest box kits take about 30 minutes to assemble, and ready-made boxes will also be available.
The Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project gratefully acknowledges funding support from Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, Habitat Stewardship Program, Wildlife Habitat Canada, the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation, and the Sunshine Coast Regional District.
