FAMILY NEST BOX WORKSHOP

FAMILY NEST BOX WORKSHOP

A lot of bird species choose our island as their home...a place where they want to live and raise their chicks. Let’s be nice neighbours and help them live more comfortably in our towns and villages!

Building a nest box is of great help to the birds around the island... apart from being a nice opportunity for you to spend some quality time with your children! It is also a opportunity to teach your kids to care about nature and learn something new about birds.

In view of this, BirdLife Malta will be organising a Family Nest Box Workshop, during which they will lead you through the process and provide you with materials. Their birders will tell you more about the breeding process and birds' behaviour. You will also have some time for birdwatching, minibeast hunting and games! At the end of the event you will have your own nest box to install it and care for it.

Now is the perfect time to build a nest box! Since we are already in the breeding season, you will be using this next spring!

Booking will be open until Friday 28th June on a first-come first-served basis and it is limited to 10 families.
