Digging deep at Eurardy

Have an interest in environmental restoration and revegetation? Then this is an event you don’t want to miss.

The Northern Agricultural Catchments Council (NACC) is proud to support the Eurardy Reserve Revegetation workshop being held in July to improve revegetation techniques and share information in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR).

The event, being held by Bush Heritage Australia will deliver a workshop where local landholders, NGOs, scientists, traditional owners and the local community can learn about improved, best-practice revegetation tehcniques relevant to local conditions and participate in a site visit.

The workshop will also comprise a working group of revegetation experts and Bush Heritage Australia staff, who will develop a five-year restoration plan for Eurardy Reserve.

Networking, collaboration and knowledge sharing on revegetation in the region are all a key focus of the workshop, as well as preparation of a plan for Eurardy Reserve to be implemented in the near future.

It is hoped the plan will result in long term benefits to the environment including increased biodiversity, improved habitat for native fauna and more stable soils, while the workshops will increase community engagement, knowledge and skills in site assessment and planning, rehabilitation and restoration.

For more information or to attend this workshop, please email Ben.Parkhurst@BushHeritage.org.au by Friday, 1 July.

Hi Ben,

I am lecturing Cert II CALM students at Central Regional TAFE Geraldton (formerly known as Durack Institute of Technology) and this workshop seems like a fantastic opportunity for my students, unfortunately however, the date does not suit as they don’t start their course until the week of the 25 July.

I am still keen to be in contact with you for future opportunities and am hoping you may be able to consider term dates for CALM TAFE students. Will this be the only time you run this course? If I have enough students would you consider having it again? Happy for any insight into further opportunities to participate in your programs throughout the TAFE semester.

Cheers
