Join our annual Backyard Biodiversity project and learn how you can create a happy and welcoming habitat for local birds and other wildlife in your own backyard.

This award-winning project encourages Boroondara residents to enhance a section of their garden with indigenous plants and other wildlife-friendly features which create invaluable spaces for our native wildlife. 

This year, the project has a particular focus on residents in Balwyn North, with the aim of increasing indigenous tree cover and foliage in local backyards, providing links for wildlife in that area to travel safely along creek corridors and onto the Yarra River.

Backyard Biodiversity includes a series of workshops and activities starting in May and continuing into June with the aim to support our community in creating inviting habitat gardens. 

They include visits to garden areas to provide inspiration for your own backyard. 

The program is open to all Boroondara residents, but places are limited, so registration is essential. 

If you register and attend the workshops, you will receive a voucher for indigenous plants and a consult with a landscape designer to help kick-start your habitat gardening journey.
