Backyard Biodiversity Project

This consultation has concluded.

Tell us about your experiences with wildlife in your gardens!

The City of Unley has limited open space. It is important that as a community we use our open spaces in a way that is sustainable and productive. One way of doing this is by ensuring we have a variety of habitats available for our local wildlife to live in.

We are looking at improving the habitat available to our local birds by encouraging residents to consider 'bird friendly' gardens with a range of plants (trees, shrubs and undergrowth) to provide food and shelter, and a water source such as a bird bath.

If you are interested in finding out more about how you can help your local community create a bird friendly environment, please participate in the discussion boards below.
