Built Shelters

In the following pages you will find instruction sheets, directions and plans for building or creating shelters for a variety of wildlife species including birds, bats, insects, reptiles and amphibians and mammals. The resources are categorized by species type. Also look at the Habitat Elements page for more information that relates to wildlife shelters including dead wood and rock walls. If you have a resource not listed, please send it to me by using the contact form (also found in the pages drop down menu) and I’ll be happy to add it.
