Thu 18 Jun - 18:00 to 21:00
Join us for this awesome biodiversity workshop with the City of South Perth - hosted online via zoom!
Bring ‘the wild’ into your environment and be transported into to their world! Our wildlife is precious. Join us to learn:
- how you can contribute to the biodiversity of your suburb by creating habitat and food sources for the fauna that inhabit the area.
- the impact on birds when we feed them scrap foods such as bread which can cause them to become malnourished and can thus affect our waterways.
- The importance of tree canopy cover in our cities, reduce the heat in our urban areas, is one of the most important design features for cities in the 21st Century. Urban Forest strategies have proven to activate communities, improving human health, mental well-being, as well as environmental health and habitat for our wildlife– shading pavements and buildings
Learn how to create habitat including bird boxes and water stations. Build insect hotels for native bees & other insects and discover how simple recycling of your unwanted containers can become homes for native animals that have lost theirs through urbanization.
The session will start at 6pm and conclude at 9pm, but is broken into 3 sessions:
- The importance of biodiversity and how you can encourage native habitat at home
- Biodiversity in the garden and the importance of urban forests
- Hands on; building homes for insects, small reptiles, birds and mammals that may be found in the south Perth area from recycled/found materials.
We ask that people joining us for the full night sign on at 5.45pm (this will give us a few minutes to troubleshoot if there are issues). If you will instead join us for just sessions 2 or 3, please pay attention to the timetable you will receive with your ticket confirmation so you know when to jump on zoom through the night. The zoom link will be emailed to you closer to the workshop.
Proudly supported by the City of South Perth.
