The Friends of Hamilton County Parks Partner with Nickel Plate Arts to Bring Free Birdhouses to the Community

Nickel Plate Arts and Friends of Hamilton County Parks are partnering to offer free birdhouse kits to the Hamilton County community! The kits are made from repurposed barn wood that John Scott Foster, President of Friends of Hamilton County Parks, reclaimed and cut to size himself. John and his wife Karen devised the kits and created an easy-to-follow instruction sheet.

The kits are free. While there are 10 currently in stock at Nickel Plate Arts, more will be coming soon.  If you would like to claim a kit on a first come, first serve basis, please email amcgill@nickelplatearts.org. An email reservation is required in order to confirm stock availability.

Once stock is confirmed, kits can be picked up between 12pm and 5 pm Thurs-Sat. Kits will be placed in a plastic bag with the recipient’s name on the front porch of the Judge Stone House on the Nickel Plate Arts’ campus at 107 S 8th Street to honor our ‘no-touch’ pick up procedures.  Please allow staff at least 24-hours notice for pick up. 

If you have any questions, please call our office number: 317-452-3690!
