Build Your Own Habitat
Have you wanted to build something with your two hands but needed some guidance, tools or the space to do it?
Learn about power tools (e.b., saws and impact drivers) and create a home for something special, in a safe and welcoming environment!
Come and build something for the local community – a house for a bat, bird or owl or build a street library! These are habitats that all house something important. 🙂
In this 2 hour long workshop, you will use reclaimed plywood to assemble (with help) your habitat creation. You will learn how measure, mark and cut accurately, and you will assemble with screws and impact drivers. Finally, you have the option of painting your box.
This workshop is taught by West! West is a naturalist, science teacher and woodworker interested in helping women and LGBTQI people build and create. They live in a tiny house they built. For more information, visit WestSideTiny.com
