CHIMNEY SWIFT TOWER WORKSHOP AT CHAETURA CANYON
(continued)

Georgean removed the bottom of one of the towers and investigated the artifacts from the year's nesting activities.  Among the droppings were egg shells that indicated how many eggs were laid, as well as how many babies hatched and fledged.

At the end of the workshop, participants gathered for a group portrait.

Two weeks after the pre-construction phase of the workshop, members gathered at the Dripping Springs Primary School to begin excavation of the location for the new tower.

Once the site was prepared and the forms were set, the tower base and supports for the kiosk were installed.

A mesh of 3/8" steel rebar was installed to insure a sturdy foundation for the tower.

The concrete was mixed and poured.  Trey did the finish work  -   insuring an attractive and functional foundation.
