This project started on 1 Nov 2017

Sightings of sugar gliders at a Huntly Bush Kinder session were the inspiration for this project - a perfect example of what our group loves to do; community collaboration, junior landcare and cross generational learning.
Bendigo Menshed prepared materials and in one day of inspiring environmental action, 60 bird and mammal nest boxes were built by Huntly PS, Epsom PS and Huntly Kinder students supported by Landcare members and kinder families and mentored by Menshed volunteers.
A community workshop was held to raise awareness of hollow-dwelling native fauna and threats to their habitat. After assessing Expressions Of Interest, all 60 nest boxes have been installed in public places and private property throughout our area.
New collaborations are occurring to ensure we continue to provide this service and offer nest boxes to community members.
