Welcome to the June edition of the Hotspots News Online. The team has been busy working on new materials for the Hotspots program, including a new landholder booklet for the Murray region and a DVD highlighting the workshop series in Burra, southern NSW. Extensive literature reviews for the fire and vegetation of the Murrumbidgee and Murray regions will also be available shortly.
More than 300 delegates from various parts of NSW, including a number from the Hotspots network attended the Nature Conservation Council of NSW’s 10th biennial Bushfire Conference on 26 and 27 May, 2015. The conference focused on the use of fire to rehabilitate degraded landscapes, restore ecological integrity, and reinstate resilience into the environment and the community. The Hotspots team was part of a broad network of people who contributed knowledge and experience, and came away with many new ideas.
Hotspots facilitators are preparing for a new round of workshops across the state. To find out more or to register your interest in attending, click on the ‘Hotspots Workshops’ article below.
As always, the Hotspots team would like to hear from you, so please forward your feedback.
