Join our family friendly birdhouse workshop to create a jolly home for songbirds to nest in the Spring. Make a hand-painted gourd birdhouse for those cavity-nesting birds in your backyard! Each participant will make and decorate one birdhouse from a gourd and have another to take home and make another creation. Our instructors will present which kind of birds live in gourd birdhouses and how to encourage nesting. Then they will assist you with the artistic decoration of your gourd, which might include colorful leaf prints, moss and other decorations, feel free to bring in any leaves you might want to use for a leaf pattern. Once you have designed it, you can take your new birdhouse gourd home to hang in your backyard, and a bluebird, wren – or maybe even a tree swallow – might move in! Workshop fee is $75 per participant, it will include two cleaned, dried and pre-drilled gourds, with correctly sized and placed entry holes for the residents, all supplies, tools and step-by-step instruction. Please wear appropriate clothing, as paint and other items can get a bit messy. This is a parent/child activity (age 7+ suggested). Unfortunately, due to material costs, cancellations after October 11th cannot be refunded. To make your reservation, go to Shoprogersgardens.com or call 949.640.5800.
