Nest Box Designs

Whether you are a gifted carpenter or just learning to swing a hammer you can help make homes for wildlife. Many of our patients like woodchucks and cottontails use nest boxes while they are here at the Center as safe hiding places. Other animals like raccoons and squirrels take their nest boxes with them when they are released. It provides a place of shelter while they are getting used to their new homes. Some can even be used in your own yard to attract wildlife. These homes for wildlife make great scout projects and Moms and Dads alike can lend a helping hand to make a wildlife home.
