Kestrel Nest Box Building Event

Online registration is now closed, but you can register at the event.  We hope to see you there!


American Kestrels are declining and we don't know why!

Kestrel Box Building EventAs part of our American Kestrel Study, HawkWatch International along with our dedicated volunteers are monitoring nest boxes throughout Utah to learn more about the reason(s) behind their population decline.

You can lend a hand by building a nest box to be used in our research efforts.  Join us for fun, food, drinks, live raptors, and group drumming by DrumBus Utah.

PLEASE NOTE: You do not keep the nest box.  It will be used in our study project.  However you are welcome sign your name on it after assembly!

Help us by building a box!

We are partnering with Mark Miller Subaru to host a family-friendly nest box building event to support our research.  Our goal is to build 50 nest boxes with your help!  Sign up by yourself or as a family/group.

Birds, Drums, Food & Fun

Come learn about our study project.  We will have some live raptors at the event for you to meet up close.  DrumBus Utah will be on site to keep the pulse of the event and energy levels high.  Food and drinks will be provided for free to those who register and build a box, and for a small charge for all others.

Don't want to build a box?

Registration for box building will be capped to the first 50 registrants.  So if we fill up or you don't want to build a box, we still want you to come and join the fun!  We will be selling food and drinks for cheap, with all proceeds benefiting HawkWatch International.
