Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Road in Park Forest, invites you to make a gourd birdhouse on Sunday, March 4 at 1 p.m. The event is for all ages but children younger than age 6 must be accompanied by an adult.

This is a fun family workshop to create a welcoming nesting space for birds in your own backyard. Join artist and teacher Pat Moore to make a natural style birdhouse from a gourd. Birdhouses are increasingly important to cavity nesters like wrens and chickadees. This is a Partnership for Programming event sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society. All materials will be provided. This program will take place indoors in an accessible facility.

There is a fee of $10 per house; limit one birdhouse per person.
