Field Trips

Workshops

As an exciting addition to our conference, a range of workshops have been organised for Tuesday 15 May. These events can be incorporated into your conference experience, or attended separately if you are unable to attend the whole event. There truly is something for everyone in this range of activities.

Nestbox Installation

Workshop 1: Build a tough, functional nestbox

Cost $50, includes lunch, afternoon tea and a flat-pack nestbox to build at the workshop or at home. Limited to 30 participants.

Location – Skillset Flannery Centre, 341 Havannah St, Bathurst NSW 2795

Time: 12pm to 4pm.

 
 

Narawan Williams, a fauna ecologist specialising in nest boxes and microbats from the greater Sydney region will guide us through some features of making a good nestbox: including baffles to reduce risk of Indian mynahs and starlings using the box, choice of materials for making your nestbox last longer and some design features for different boxes for gliders, possums and parrots. In the workshop we will be working in small groups to build a range of boxes for use in Landcare projects. Every participant will also get “flat-pack” nestbox to complete in the workshop if time permits or to take home to build. This will be a hands on workshop - we will be using drills and other tools to make your nestbox. Please wear suitable clothing and closed sturdy shoes.

Bookings are essential as places are limited, please register by Friday 11th May.

Hollow Augmentation.jpg

Workshop 3: Box gum woodlands and nestboxes

Cost $10, includes lunch, afternoon tea and a guided walk. Limited to 30 participants.

Location: Meet at the carpark at Bathurst and District Vietnam Vets Memorial Park, corner of Blayney Road and Mid Western Highway (Blayney Road), Bathurst.

Time: 12pm - 4pm

 

Come for a walk around Boundary Road Reserve and the Blayney Road Common with guides from Boundary Road Landcare, Bathurst Regional Council and Central Tablelands Landcare. Both sites are Box-Gum Grassy Woodland EECs and both Landcare and council have been working to protect and enhance local plants and animals in the reserves. We will be looking at nestboxes installed on-site, looking at various ways you can tell what animals are using the nestboxes as well as identifying plants and birds at the sites. Bring binoculars if you have them. Dress for the weather - it can be cold in Bathurst at this time of year. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes as this workshop will involve some walking. A highlight of the walk will be an arborist demonstration of the hollow augmentation technique.

Bookings are essential as places are limited, please register by Friday 11th May.

Native Bee Hotel.jpg

Workshop 2: Make yourself a Native Bee Motel

Cost $20, includes lunch and afternoon tea as well as your own bee motel to take home. Limited to 20 participants.

Location: Central Tablelands Landcare Nursery.

Time: 12pm - 4pm.

**SOLD OUT**
 

 

Liz Davis, Central Tablelands Regional Landcare Facilitator, will run a hands on workshop on how and why to build Native Bee Motels. Every participant will build and take home a native bee motel and get some tips on how they can attract local native bees to their own backyard, whether it’s a farm, bushland, suburban block or a balcony. Native bee motels not only provide plenty of nooks and crannies for these beneficial insects to nest in but can be very decorative as well. These can be made in all shapes and sizes, the only limit is your creativity!
