The Junortoun Community Action Group is leading a project to install hundreds of nest boxes for birds and small mammals along the O’Keefe Rail Trail in Junortoun and neighbouring communities.
To date nest boxes have been constructed to support the nesting behaviours of:
- Tuans (phascogales)
- Sugar gliders
- Eastern Rosellas
- Owlet nightjars
