Adopt A Bird House

We have a number of gorgeous rustic bird houses to refurbish. These were donated to our community after the bushfires of 2013.

Workshop for the Family

As part of the Dereel community activities in 2019, we want your family to ‘adopt’ a bird house and refurbish it. This may involve a good brush down, maybe a little sanding, possibly some timber oil or even a little painting and decorating.

Saturday 2nd March 2019 between 1 pm to 4 pm

It’s a FREE workshop—great fun and great to get the kids involved.

Come to:
Dereel Community Centre,
14 Swamp Road Dereel,

There is an assortment of species specific bird boxes so come along and pick the one your family would like to adopt. We can supply some basic materials, information sheets and ideas on designs.

Then, when you are finished, return the bird house to the Community Centre.

Hanging the Bird Boxes

A fun family day will be organized to help hang the boxes around the lagoon walking track and other common areas. This means you can keep an eye on your families bird box to see how it is being used by the many species of wildlife in our area that use hollows.

For more info. contact Glynis: or 0438150256

We need your help to make this happen and we appreciate your support.
