Activity idea - Nestboxes and bee hotels
Nestboxes and bee hotels can be made at any time of the year and are a fantastic 'gift' for your local wildlife! Many of our native animals need tree hollows to shelter and raise their young. You can find plans for different types of nest boxes on the Birds in Backyards website here.
Did you know that Australia has over 1,500 native bee species? Bee hotels help to support those native bee populations. Bees are fundamental to help pollinate our flowers, fruits and veggies. Building a bee hotel is a great activity and possibly less tricky than a nestbox for younger kids, with adult supervision.
