Kim and Norm at the Sugar Glider Nest Box Workshop in 2015
A CMN workshop to build your own habitat box will be held in Bega on Saturday 20 February 2016 from 9am – 3pm, led by local carpenter/builder Jo Saccomani.
If you are a landholder who would like to encourage Sugar Gliders or micro bats to live and breed on your property, you are invited to come and learn how to build a habitat box. Your design can then be adapted at home to build habitat boxes for other species.
Sugar Gliders and many species of bats use tree hollows for breeding or roosting. With the number of natural tree hollows declining, supplementary hollows can be provided by installing habitat boxes.
Encouraging Sugar gliders and micro bats to live and breed on your property can help with natural pest control. Sugar gliders are one of the principal predators of Christmas beetles which can swarm, defoliate and kill native plantings. A single micro bat can catch hundreds of mosquitos and small insects in a night.
This workshop is free, with materials and morning tea provided.
Spaces are limited. For bookings, please email email@example.com or call 0417 246 896 by Monday 15 February.
