NACC Hidden Treasures Bushland Field Day
The NACC Hidden Treasures Workshop will be held on the 25th of September. The day will give an overview to protecting remnant vegetation on properties and the NACC Hidden Treasures funding incentive for fencing off bush. We have organised some great speakers to discuss key flora and fauna species in the area; landscape features, soils and geomorphology and how this supports what species are in the area; creating corridors and linkages for wildlife; plant ID, weeds, management issues etc. Should be a great day.
