Bushfire 2016 will be an engaging, informative and inspiring conference squarely aimed at connecting fire scientists, ecologists and students with onground fire operators, public land managers, land managers (e.g. natural resources, weed/pest, biodiversity), utility operators, planners and other fire and environmental professionals. Early bird registrations close – 29 July.
Thanks to the Kyogle Hospital Mens Shed team who have been hard at work making nest boxes for a wide range of hollow dependant species including boxes for Gliders, Possums, Microbats, Rosellas, Lorikeets and Owls. David Hall, volunteer coordinator of the Mens Shed, says the workshop provides a great social space for men where they can keep busy and support a meaningful project while in temporary residence at the hospital. Many of the boxes are odered in advance for specific habitat restoration projects but they are also available to the public through the Kyogle Landcare office for a minimal material cost price. The office is located next to Green Mountain Meats, Summerland Way Kyogle and is open Tuesday and Thursday 10am-2pm.
