13th April 2022
Landcare Tasmania is launching its fourth landscape-scale project with a plantation restoration workshop on the Tasman Peninsula on Saturday 30th April 2022.
As the launch of Landcare’s South East Landscape Project for 2022, this workshop is an excellent opportunity to hear first-hand about the project. The project entails a year of planting on farms, fencing, and many workshops in the Tasman and Pitt Water Coal catchments.
Restoration expert Todd Dudley will talk in detail on plantation restoration. It will include a walk-and-talk in a local plantation that is going to be restored to native vegetation.
This workshop will provide practical knowledge and skills for participants to undertake their own restoration projects. Whether attendees have their own project or are simply interested in learning more about ecosystems and natural values of the area, this workshop will be highly valuable.
Come along to learn some valuable skills and to hear what is happening in the region.
