Nest Box Plans

Red-phase eastern screech owl peeking out of a nesting box.

As a family, school class, youth group, or civic organization, building nesting boxes for owls is a great service project.

Check with a local natural resource professional or local landowners to find a place to hang them. Plan a field day to help hang the nest boxes (or at least observe). Plan to revisit the site at a later date to check if it is being used. Perhaps partner with CCB or landowner to have someone check it regularly and give photos/updates to the class.
