Nest Boxes - Why, What & Where?

Saturday 22 June 2024
Allans Flat Recreation Reserve
10am to 12pm
Free, with morning tea provided
Bring a chair and dress warmly
Hosted by Kiewa Catchment Landcare Groups

Book your place now at https://events.humanitix.com/nest-box-why-what-where

Old growth trees containing natural hollows are now rare in our environment. Building your own wildlife hollow or purchasing a commercially available nest box can provide much-needed habitat for hollow dependent native birds and animals.

Local nest box guru, Neil Padbury, will explain why native species need nest boxes, what they require and where to locate the boxes.
