A fun outreach day, also known as “Kids with Power Tools”

Today a pile of grade 4/5 students bombarded our nursery, ready to build a whole bunch of nest boxes. It was a great day, with the main lesson being that kids have tons of fun when they’re outside in the sun and given power tools (supervised by adults, of course), paint brushes, and a bunch of fun games.

In 3 hours, we built 8 bat boxes, 10 nest boxes for the Western Screech Owl, painted six reptile boards, and burned off about 1,000,000 calories.
