Nature Know-how ‘Re-cyc-ology’ nest boxes

March 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Learn how to build, install, monitor and maintain nest boxes for hollow dependent wildlife.


Please note that this is a program for adults and young people aged 12 and over and is a presentation. Photographs and videos may be taken of the event. Please book one ticket for each person attending.

Simon Cherriman and Danielle from The Re-Cyc-Ology Project specialise in constructing and installing long-lasting, feral bee-resistant nest-boxes from recycled materials and showing you how to do the same.

Explore the story of tree hollows, habitat loss and how nest-boxes can help wildlife in southwestern Australia in an informative presentation, then see how nest boxes can be made from recycled materials via a demonstration.

This workshop has been organised in partnership with Gidgegannup Men’s Shed and they will be providing a free BBQ prior to the workshop to which all attendees are invited.
