Urban Biodiversity Unit’s New Interactive Display: coming to a local venue near you soon
It has been a long time in the making but the Urban Biodiversity Unit has now launched its new Interactive Display. The display’s first host was the new Evanston branch of the Gawler Public Library which is just one example of where you might find it in action. Future targeted venues will be other libraries, local council foyers, community/natural resource centres, and the SA Museum to name a few. You can also see it some of the events that the UBU will be attending, like WomAdelaide, Uraidla Sustainability Fair and the Royal Show.
Designed to encourage interaction, this display highlights the UBU's Backyards 4 Wildlife Program, featuring messages and information on the advantages of growing local indigenous plants, and what fauna these plants can attract to your home garden.
The display is static and features a number of informative and engaging Backyards 4 Wildlife publications that are available free to the general public for their own reference. The publications can also be tailored to different audiences. Interactive educational elements on the fences are included for children to learn about some of the local native wildlife that can be found in their own backyards.
In its complete capacity, the display’s dimensions are 4m x 4m approx. When split into 2 displays, one display would be 4m x 2m and the other would equal 2m x 2m approx. The display(s) can be tailored to the size of the space nominated by an organisation.
To find out more or to make a booking for the display at your site please contact the Urban Biodiversity Unit on 8278 0600. Be one the first to have this exciting new feature at your venue!
