Workshops planned for 2018-19

Hotspots will be running a workshop series with the Bombay community in autumn that links to an Office of Environment and Heritage, Saving Our Species research trial into the management of Kunzia parviflora. Discussions are also being held with the Cobargo community for a proposed workshop in spring.

Following the recent workshop in Canyonleigh this year, there are plans to deliver more workshops in the Southern Highlands in spring with the Penrose community. One of the focuses for this workshop will be working with Land for Wildlife to promote wildlife conservation and sustainable fire management actions, including protecting local koala populations. There are also discussions of holding a workshop in the Orangeville Werombi area with a peri-urban community near Wollondilly, south of Sydney.

Planning is also underway to run workshops with the Shannon Creek community near Grafton in spring. These will include recommendation for better managing land to protect local threatened populations of barking owls, masked owls, powerful owls, and brush-tailed rock wallabies, as well as protecting other assets.

If you are interested in attending one of these workshops, please register your interest via the Hotspots website: http://hotspotsfireproject.org.au/contact
