Creating a wildlife habitat: research
Time Allocation: 30 - 45 minutes*
Activity Level: Moderate
Creating a native wildlife habitat is a great way for kids to discover what is living in their backyard and local area. Not only will children learn about plant and animal species, they will understand the importance of urban habitats. The research phase is essential to discover the animals that already call your garden home.
We encourage our Junior Landcarers to learn more about wildlife habitats by exploring these other learning activities. These include the Creating a frog-friendly habitat sequence: research, design and construction, Creating a bee hotel sequence: research and construction as well as Building a nest box.
*Time allocation will be dependent on site selection and travel time. Additional time may be spent in consultation with your local Landcare group, council, or native plant nursery.
