Happy New Year! We will open every Friday, Saturday & Sunday in January as usual.
(p.s. Still going to award our photo contest winner for 2015... announcement coming up soon!)
We have been open as the Given Back Bird Houses Working Museum for a year and a half now, and have gotten some absolutely wonderful write-ups in print! We are featured in Via Magazine as the Souvenir suggestion for the Sept/Oct 2015 issue, and the 2015 Summer issue of Coast Explorer Magazine wrote all about how we blend art and science, then share it with the public. Read both write ups right here, on our Press and Donations page.
Our Book Is Published!
We were hired out of London to write a book all about what we do, and how & why we do it, called Natural
Birdhouses. It is currently being translated into a full French version.
This book is published all over the world - the American and UK editions are on academic shelves, in libraries, and for sale internationally in 2015. You can buy copies in Australia, New Zealand,
Italy, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Great Britain, Poland, Japan, Turkey, and of course, on Amazon.com, Barns and Nobles.com, etc... BUT, when you buy from us online, or in our museum, they will be signed and numbered by us individually. You can place your orders here anytime.

Happy Harvest Days!
This fall, you can watch us make your customized bird house in our workshop, while you wander through an indoor
forest, full of one of a kind & hand made wonders. When you order online, we make the pieces in the museum and then send you photographs to choose your favorite.

Wedding & Anniversary Specialty Gifts
Many of our clients celebrate special unions with a personalized bird habitat. Different from other elegant gifts, a Given Back Bird House keeps on giving, when the birds move in and raise successful families inside. The newlyweds think of you each time they see the bird house in their garden, and feel the bond of their love through watching life happen together.
