Habitat for Native Animals

  • The Lost Plot Central Road Port Macquarie, NSW, 2444 Australia (map)

If you are interested in providing habitat for native animals in your backyard this free community workshop is for you. Content covered includes:

• Why provide nestboxes?
• Hollow dependent wildlife in our local area
• Natural hollows
• Artificial hollows vs. nestboxes
• Options for construction
• Installation: site & orientation
• Maintenance & monitoring
• Trouble shooting
• Data capture (for the citizen scientists)

The workshop will be led by the delightful Catherine Mardell, who'll be sure to have you not only engaged and enjoying yourselves, but using your belly to let out a few good laughs! She is also an absolute wealth of knowledge and we are so excited to have her down at the garden.

This workshop is part of our Sustainability Made Easy series. This Project is supported by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust.
