Warriparinga Bird Nesting Box Building Day

In late 2017, the Darlington Upgrade project team joined forces with James Smith from FauNature, the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre and Forbes Primary School to build and paint a variety of nesting boxes to create homes for native wildlife.

In early 2018, the nesting boxes were installed in the Warriparinga Wetlands for our fauna and community to enjoy.

The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre's nesting box workshops provide local schools and community members an opportunity to work with the project team to learn more about the project, learn more about Kaurna history and culture, the importance of hollow-bearing trees and to help create habitat to attract natural wildlife to the area.

Warriparinga is  a unique site in the heart of Marion, known for its natural beauty, outdoors recreation, native plants and animals as well as a place for cultural and environmental education.

It is significant for its Kaurna, European and environmental features. The Kaurna Aboriginal words Warri Parri means “windy place by the river”.
