GARDENS FOR WILDLIFE BALLARAT
Whether you have a big backyard, a tiny courtyard, a community garden, a school veggie patch, or pot plants on your balcony, everyone can help contribute to the survival of wildlife by providing suitable places (habitat) for birds, insects, frogs, lizards and other animals.
By participating in the program and becoming engaged in wildlife gardening, you too are a volunteer helping our community to foster local nature. Private landholders can play a critical role in creating a healthy and thriving environment in urban and peri-urban areas.
Attract more birds (New Holland Honeyeater)
Plant food and shelter for native bees (Showy Podolepis)
Add a bat box or other nest box if there is a lack of local hollows
Provide water, add a rock in a water bowl for safety of small birds
Connecting to nature in our gardens is also good for our health!
