Go Green: Create a Birdhouse Habitat Around Your Playground

By Beth Newingham on April 18, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

In support of our school's effort to "go green," the Wolf Cub Scout group -- made up of students at my school -- constructed birdhouses as a den project and created a birdhouse habitat around our playground.

The birdhouses provide nesting space in the birds’ increasingly threatened habitat. An increased bird population is not only pleasant for the eyes and ears, but is also important to our ecosystem. Birds scavenge wastes, pollinate plants, and search for food in the garden. They help our garden habitat by eating greenflies, caterpillars, and snails: a huge benefit for the organic gardener.
