What's On Conference

Fire and Biodiversity Forum

Next event Friday 4 Jun from 9:30am to 4pm

By Margaret River HEART

Broadscale prescribed burning is used extensively as a fire mitigation tool in the SouthWest of WA.

In this forum we will examine its effectiveness and the ways it interacts with the natural landscape, including its impact on all living things.

Our objective is to further develop an informed and nuanced conversation around fire mitigation, responses to fire, biodiversity, people and places, in the face of a changing climate.

  • Registration 8.45am
  • Start 9.30am
  • Social Event:  4pm – 6pm
  • Please BRING a water bottle and a name tag – sustainable solutions
