Backyard Birdhouses

June 16, 2021 6pm - 7pm

Horticulture Display Garden at the WCROC

Enjoy the vast world of backyard birdhouses! Birds rely on food, water and shelter - all of which we can provide in our own backyards. We'll discuss the various specifications of birdhouses for chickadees, wrens, bluebirds, wood ducks, and tree swallows. Learn why these amazing creatures need different types of houses to meet their shelter and nesting needs, where the best place to put your birdhouses are, and what you can do to protect the nesting birds from predators. Bring along your binoculars for an evening of bird watching in the Horticulture Display Garden!

Presented by Dr. Margaret Kuchenreuther, Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Minnesota Morris. She teaches courses in ecology, conservation biology and plant systematics and conducts research on prairie restoration and management. In her spare time, she is an avid gardener and bird watcher.

Registration is required upon arrival. Class size limited to the first 25 people; first come first serve. Social distancing and masks required for those who are not fully vaccinated. 

This workshop is part of the Come Grow with Us horticulture education series. Classes are free to attend.
