What is the place of fire in our landscape? Friend, foe or just part of living here?
Join us in a Community Conversation about fire in our landscape on November 12-13, 2016 at the Newstead Community Centre.
Through our Community Conversation we will learn about fire in the Newstead-Maldon landscape: the history of fire, local ecology, fire risk and community-based approaches to better landscape planning and management to protect what we value.
During the weekend there will be talks, displays, biodiversity walks, visits to the sites of past fires, and a chance to record your memories of local fires. Supported by community and external experts, the weekend will be a chance to learn about more and share ideas across our local communities. This event is for those in Newstead, Maldon and everywhere in between and close by.
Put the date in your diary. Watch for updates via The Echo, Tarrangower Times, the Newstead Community Facebook page and other local media.
