Join Awbury staff and volunteers in building and repairing bird houses to be installed in Awbury’s landscape.

Led by:  Larry Moyer – A steward of the arboretum, Larry has been a volunteer at Awbury for over five years. Woodworking is one of Larry’s many hobbies. Awbury has also utilized Larry’s masonary skills by restoring a brick path in the Cope house restored heath garden, and building a terrace wall in the pollinator habitat. In the past Larry has helped renovate abandoned houses in Germantown and even developed and directed a local youth training program. He was an English teacher for the Philadelphia public schools for 30 years.

We look forward to a installation celebration in February, including a bird walk.  More details TBD.
