LAND FOR WILDLIFE WORKSHOP 2015

The Palerang Area Network for Sustainability (FuturePLANS) is hosting a workshop on “How to improve habitat for plants and animals at my place”. The workshop will be held on the 14th June 2015 from 1.00-4.00 pm in Wamboin.

You are invited to come along and learn from local ecologist and plant propagation expert Geoff Butler from the Wamboin Geary’s Gap Landcare group. He will be talking about rehabilitating degraded habitats, establishing native plants and care of new plantings.

Nicki Taws from Greening Australia will conduct a guided walk and share her expertise on how to plan and plant diverse habitat for wildlife. Nicki Taws is a Project Manager with Greening Australia working on the restoration of woodland and grassland habitat. She has a particular interest in birds.

Mallika Robinson, co-developer of the biodiversity monitoring Ap QuestaGame will demonstrate how to record the wildlife you see on your property, contribute to the Atlas of Living Australia data and have fun at the same time.

Everyone is invited to rug up and bring along your binoculars for a fun and informative afternoon including a sign presentation for new Land for Wildlife Members and native plants to give away.

As the workshop is being held on private property, details of the location will be given once you register your interest for the workshop. The workshop is funded by the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife.
