The Problem

there has been a huge loss in the world's bird population in the last 50 years, largely due to habitat loss. We want to install birdhouses in a local park to help restore the lost habitat and encourage native bird species to stay or return to the area.

Our Plan

We are going to construct birdhouses using donated wood from a local company and a laser cutter that are made specifically for the bird species in our area. We also are ensuring that our birdhouses are designed and installed in such a way that the birds will actually be willing to use them and prevent them from be in danger from predators. We will be installing the birdhouses in a local park when they are finished.
