Youth Week: All about nest boxes!
Join us with Hollow Log Homes to discover how you can contribute to backyard conservation by learning to construct an artificial hollow or nest box with scrap timber and recycled materials. Nest boxes provide important habitat for many native birds and animals including squirrel gliders, bats, native bees, wood ducks, brush tail possums, and parrots. Come along to discover how to attract wildlife to your very own backyard and, for your chance to win your very own nest box for your backyard!
