Come and find out why you should consider putting up nest boxes – they can be put up in urban areas too. We will look at Wooragee Landcare’s nest box program and hear what animals have been observed using the boxes. Nest boxes are one of the tools we can use to increase habitat for wildlife and is a great activity to get younger people involved in Landcare activities.
The topics we will cover are:
We will also showcase some of the latest monitoring camera technology (pole camera) and inspect some of the boxes located in the primary school reserve.
Our presenter Jim Blackney has been involved in nest box projects throughout the North East and is co-author of the “Nest Box Guide for North East Victoria” produced by Swamps Rivers and Ranges.
The first part of the session will be in the hall, then afternoon tea, and the second part next door looking at the nest boxes in the school grounds.
Wear strong covered in shoes. Keep warm or cool and shaded depending on the weather. A cuppa and afternoon tea will be provided.
