Have you got any on your place? Ever wondered why people do it, or what they’re for? Come along on Friday evening, 25th May, 2012, to the Violet Town Community Hall, tell us your story and hear all about what’s happening locally, nest-box-wise.

Come along to hear about the several larger nest-box-projects in our district that have been getting fantastic results, in terms of habitat improvement, wildlife records, and in being a great way for landholders to observe some our most secretive native animals on their own properties.

For more information: Bertram Lobert (5790 8606), Janet Hagen (5790 4268), or Janice Mentiplay-Smith (57611644, 0418 316 169), or view more details here. RSVP essential.
