Build a Bat Box
Come and build a home for bats or owls!
It can be a gift or for your own yard! Give local bats/owls a beautiful habitat and reduce the bugs/rodents in your area.
Learn how to use a few hand and power tools in a safe environment and enjoy the beautiful woodworking space at Chimera. You will go home with a painted, decorated, complete, bat box made from reclaimed/salvaged materials.
This class is taught by West! West is a naturalist, science teacher and woodworker, and teaches at local builder’s group Dykes With Drills.
Materials, tools and paint provided according to # of sign ups. So, please attend if you sign up and if you bring anyone, please make sure they sign up in advance!
Beginners welcome. Owl boxes will take more time and skill, so people coming with beginning skills are encouraged to start with a bat box and come back for the owl house making next class.
Ages 10+ welcome, those under 18 must attend with an adult.
You must register 72 hours in advance!
Sliding scale $20-$50, pay what you can.
