Education is unfolding the wings of head and heart together. The job of a teacher is to push the students out of the nest to strengthen their wings. – Amit Ray, Walking the Path of Compassion

Owl Box Plans

While preparing for her Girl Scout Gold Award Project, Charlotte teen Pavani Gingrich saw staggering statistics that indicated a dangerous decrease in the local owl populations due to clear-cutting. She wanted to use her project to help start the rebuilding process of the owl population. These owl boxes were built as part of her project to replace their lost homes. Pavani is a member of Troop 1029 in the Girl Scout's Hornets Nest Council.

If you are interested in attracting raptors to your property, here are plans for all sizes of nest box.
