2016 August

Some of the group attended the ‘Fire and Bushcare’ half day workshop organised by the Nature Conservation Council and Blue Mountains Bushcare Network. Redgum Park was one of the sites visited as a hazard reduction burn is planned for the near future.

  • discuss the challenges of re-introducing fire into bushland in the Blue Mountains and managing for ecological outcomes
  • discuss the opportunities and considerations for bush care groups working on sites where hazard reduction burns are planned
  • discuss the logistics of planning and conducting small hazard reduction burns
