Learn about two projects which focus on the use of “Artificial” hollows and “Natural” hollows for native wildlife that is facing huge habitat loss caused by such things as the removal of trees from properties, including old growth trees, clearing of bushland for development, etc. To date, more than 80 residents of the Ku-ring-gai Council area have obtained one of the “Natural” hollows for their gardens.
+ INDOOR ECO MARKET - enjoy a number of eco stalls at our meeting which includes another way of helping our wildlife, beaches and environmetn - promoting Plastic Free July.
