Nest boxes and Urban Habitat

Nest boxes and Urban Habitat

As Victorians, we are fortunate to have a diverse range of fascinating and unique fauna, right on our very doorstep and part of our challenge is to ensure that they will have a healthy habitat into the future.   There are many passionate and committed people across the State, delivering inspiring nest box programs and we would like to share some of this with you.

Our nest box information aims to bring together and celebrate the great work of various nest box programs around Victoria with updated information from our own Youth Wildlife Ambassador Gio Fitzpatrick's research. 

We offer a range of nest box and urban habitat resources, workshops and information sessions where participants will embark on a positive journey of discovery and understanding of their local wildlife and community.  

Our nest-box kits are most suited to ages 9 (Grade 4) to adult.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.
We proudly work in partnership with Aunty Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
