Have your say... Rosemary Yates

Rosemary Yates, a property owner and participant from the Dundurrabin Hotspots workshop series had this to say about the workshop series;

"The workshop was great and I'm really supportive of the Hotspots program. All the other landholders are saying how useful this workshop has been and what a great opportunity to listen and interact with different experts in their field, something that has never happened for many landholders before. Having all the facilitators here to share their vast knowledge of how to best care for the land with a view to biodiversity was really inspirational. It was a very down to earth, common sense approach to land management and fire. The workshop content confirmed existing knowledge and taught us new information to bring about a healthy future for our land management. We all have really good maps now and having felt very concerned about the issue of fire and biodiversity in the past, now feel much more empowered. Thank you for coming and helping our community” 

This workshop was funded through the Northern Rivers CMA and delivered by Julie Woodroffe (Never Never Resources) a Hotspots facilitator, John Allen, the NSW Rural Fire Service Hotspots facilitator and Mark Graham, Nature Conservation Council of NSW Hotspots ecologist.
