Community demand to learn more this decade on ecosystem restoration

3rd Nov 2022 | 

Last weekend we held an excellent workshop on ecological restoration.  This is a topic the community are very eager to learn more about - it's the decade on ecosystem restoration and we don't have time to twiddle our thumbs.  We had a huge response and maxxed capacity at 50 RSVPs.

Presenting at this workshop was award-winning restoration expert Todd Dudley, Landcare Tasmania’s CEO Peter Stronach, and Wendy Horniblow from the local Landcare group, who shared her experience with Turner’s Beach Coastcare.

The workshop included a visit to a nearby private property where attendees were introduced to examples of different vegetation types, including native forest, riparian zones, pasture and plantation, all of which have different ecological needs.

This workshop provided practical knowledge and skills for community members to undertake their own restoration projects, and the response shows that there is a real hunger for this type of training. We are excited to start planning the workshop program for 2023.

This workshop is part of Landcare Tasmania’s landscape-scale project: The Northern Slopes Landscape Project, bringing together Landcare members working on common issues to create a long term benefit at a landscape-scale. It is funded by the State Government's Landcare Action Grants.
