There is a shortage of tree hollows in Whitehorse. Tree hollows are crucial for a number of our native birds and animals for raising their young. Local wildlife depends on the older trees not only in our parks but also in your garden. Join us for a walk, talk and presentation by wildlife expert John Harris to find out the nesting potential of your backyard. Learn what you can do in your own garden to support local wildlife.

Plus take home a free indigenous plant for your garden from one of our local indigenous nurseries!
