Welcome to the latest Hotspots News Online. The Hotspot team is busily running workshops across the state, as well as wrapping up a tailored workshop program in the Hunter. Upcoming workshops are scheduled in the South East, Central West and the Murrumbidgee catchment regions – the Murrumbidgee being a new delivery area for Hotspots. If you are interested in attending a workshop in your area, click on the link provided in the ‘Upcoming Workshops’ article below.
October 2013 will be remembered as one of the most significant fire emergencies experienced in NSW for many years, with fires returning in January resulting in further property damage near Forbes, Yass, Tumut and Corowa. In February, rain across NSW saw the threat of fire ease. As we head into the cooler months, now is the time to start thinking about preparing your home and property for the next fire season.
A new landholder booklet for the Murrumbidgee catchment is now available as well as a case study on the collaborative work in the Border Ranges restoring habitat for the endangered eastern bristlebird, see details below.
As always the Hotspots team would like to hear from you...please forward your feedback, and be part of our regular "have your say" article.
