Blue Bird Box Workshop
March 19th at 10:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m.
Peter Norbeck Outdoor Ed Center

Celebrate Spring with Custer State Park by helping out bluebirds! This program allows participants to build bluebird houses, learn about the mountain and eastern bluebird, and the benefits the boxes have to these unique birds. This program allows participants to learn about the mountain bluebird and other types of bird and their bird boxes, the benefits of providing a nesting box, the birds that could potentially use the box, and the box location for successful nesting. Following the presentation, participants will construct a bird box.

The workshop is being offered at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Due to limited supplies, you MUST have a reservation for the program you wish to attend. You can make a reservation by calling the park office at 605-255-4515.

Participants will construct one birdhouse during this program and take their completed birdhouse home. We will meet at the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center and visit a few of the current bluebird boxes that Custer State Park has and check to see if any birds are nesting in them. All supplies will be provided.
Participants will need to bring a hammer and will take their completed bird box home. Please Note one box per family.
There is no fee for the program; however, all vehicles require a park entrance license at the program location.

Park License is Required.
