Birds and Boxes – Building Homes for Hollow Nesting Birds

The Palerang Action Network for Sustainability (Future PLANS) has partnered with the Lake George Men’s Shed to build 20 bird nest boxes. We are holding an information session on the value of providing bird nesting boxes, the plight of hollow nesting birds in a changing environment, how to build boxes and a demonstration on how to put one up.

Guest Speakers will include David McDonald from the Canberra Ornithologists Group who will speak about the bird species we have built boxes for and why providing nesting sites is important in our environment.

Penny Kothe from Caroola Farm will also be at the gathering to provide information on the community garden and talk about growing garlic.
