NACC NRM is pleased to announce that Mick Kelly from the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage has been added to our program line-up as a keynote speaker.
Mick Kelly – a Ngiyampaa Man from far western NSW – has a long working history within the NSW public service for over 25 years in land management roles and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage management and protection roles
He is now working within the Knowledge Services Team, Ecosystem Management Science, Science Division, Mick’s role within this team is to unpack Traditional Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge and information of how Aboriginal people managed the Land
and all that is associated with it so that other ecologists and scientists can understand that Traditional Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge is the oldest living and practiced Science of this land, if not the world.
NACC is also excited to announce that Dr Carl Gosper will be presenting at the Forum. Dr Gosper – a Senior Research Scientist, Biodiversity and Conservation Science – has over ten years of research experience in eucalypt woodlands.
He will be speaking on woodland vegetation dynamics and response to disturbance, focussing on the unique and iconic obligate-seeder woodlands of the Western Australian wheatbelt and Great Western Woodlands.
The Forum will build on NACC NRM’s reputation for offering a dynamic, interactive and targeted program that supports partnerships and coordination between all levels of government, community, researchers, non-government organisations, regional NRM groups, and the business sector.
The conference program will be released in August and you can still submit your oral or poster abstract.
Everyone is welcome to attend the forum and we are excited to be welcoming you to the beautiful Midwest this spring.
