How To Build A Screech Owl Box

Presenter:  Stephen Lyn Bales

Registration is required for this free event. Register here

Join the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society for our First Thursday Nature Supper Club as we learn how to build a roost box for a screech-owl. Eastern screech-owls are the smallest owls that live in the woods around us. Like any animal they need food, water and shelter. Since screech owls are nocturnal, they look for a hollow tree or other safe place to roost during the day and raise their young. We will show you some of the important features needed to provide safe habitat when you build a roost box. There will be a question and answer session after the “how to” program. A PDF of the Screech Owl Box plans will be sent to all those that register for the class. Local naturalist, Stephen Lyn Bales, and UT Arboretum Education Coordinator, Michelle Campanis, will lead this how-to program.
