Providing habitat for wood ducks, bluebirds and other birds makes good conservation sense, and that's why the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB) is proud to partner with the Alabama Wildlife Federation to provide quality duck boxes, bluebird houses and bird feeders. Constructed of quality pine and cypress woods, these boxes are built by adults who have multiple disabilities in the Work Adjustment/Pathways Program at AIDB's E.H. Gentry Technical Facility (EHG).
Work Adjustment/Pathways gives adults with special needs an opportunity to develop work skills for transition into the competitive workplace or, when appropriate, into a sheltered workshop setting. Pathways focuses on students developing occupational skills and learning appropriate work attitudes and
habits while earning money from their productivity. The Work Adjustment/Pathways Program is critical since many of these adults have never been employed or they have recently lost their hearing or sight and must learn a new job.
With support from the Alabama Wildlife Federation, the EHG Work Adjustment/Pathways Program provides duck boxes, blue bird boxes and bird feeders to the public. Students with multiple disabilities produce all aspects of the boxes and feeders to form completed pieces. Bluebird house kits come ready for easy assembly, or can be bought pre-assembled.
