A workshop is being held in Hartley to held landholders learn more about wildlife of the western Blue Mountains and to find out how to make their property more wildlife friendly.

Local Land Services (LLS) is holding the wildlife workshop on Saturday March 25. It is being presented by ecologist Kurtis Lindsay at Historic Hartley Hotel from 10am to 4pm and will offer advice and ideas that will help people attract and encourage wildlife onto their land.

At the workshop we’ll learn how to use wildlife cameras to detect elusive native animals. Also we’ll look at different types of nest boxes and other ways to improve habitat to encourage wildlife,” Mr Lindsay said.
