How to make your property more wildlife friendly - Hartley Workshop

On the 25 March, landholders are invited to learn about wildlife of the western Blue Mountains and to find out how to make their property more wildlife friendly.

Local Land Services is holding a Wildlife Workshop presented by ecologist Kurtis Lindsay at Historic Hartley Hotel on Saturday 25 March to give advice and ideas that will help people attract and encourage wildlife onto their land.

“The Western Blue Mountains area has an interesting, unique and diverse range of native animals.

At the workshop we’ll learn how to use wildlife cameras to detect elusive native animals. Also we’ll look at different types of nest boxes and other ways to improve habitat to encourage wildlife,” said Kurtis.

Marg Duffy, Land Services Officer at Central Tablelands Local Land Services said, “The Western Blue Mountains has an abundance of wildlife. We want to inform landholders on the best ways to make their property wildlife friendly and encourage healthy habitats for various species in our area.”

This workshop is supported by Central Tablelands Local Land Services through funding from the Australian Government.

The event is free but you do need to register by Thursday 23 March. If you are interested please contact Marg Duffy at Central Tablelands Local Land Services on 6350 3113 or
