Fire a hot topic at the Private Land Conservation Conference

Richard Geddes, Bush Heritage’s National Fire Program Manager will lead a field trip to Queensland Trust for Nature’s 2000 ha, working cattle property called Aroona as part of this year’s Australian Land Conservation Alliance Conference, PLC18, being held in Brisbane between 24-26 October 2018.

The workshop aims to:
Explore the challenges involved in undertaking fire management on private land.
Unpack the operational delivery of planned burns, monitoring and ecological surveys and how this work can integrate with invasive species management.  
Observe how fire planning is being integrated into management of both grazing and conservation of threatened species at Aroona.
Discuss practical techniques for protection of fire sensitive vegetation and threatened species.
Meet and learn from a variety of fire managers including QTFN’s Conservation Manager, Fireland Consulting and Aboriginal rangers who are implementing some of the largest fire management projects on private land across the country.
Tickets are selling fast for both the PLC18 conference and workshops so get in quick to avoid disappointment. Register here or contact PLC18 conference producer Ashleigh with any questions: ashleigh@nectarcc.com.au or phone 07 3398 8788

Recent prescribed burn at Aroona. Aroona  is a working cattle station operating along the Little Liverpool Range and was donated to the Qld Trust for Nature by Kathleen and Dr Robin Stock. At Aroona, sustainable grazing practices go hand-in-hand with conservation outcomes.

More about the 2018 Private Land Conservation conference

The PLC18 conference being held this October in Brisbane, brings together participants from all corners of Australia to celebrate the importance of private land conservation. PLC18 comes alive with stories of landholders, businesses, conservation professionals, indigenous organisations and many others who are helping grow Australia’s private protected areas from thousands to millions of hectares.
The theme “Accelerating Connection” - points to the importance of connection across land, people and landscapes, the centrality of connectivity for species and ecosystems. PLC18 is inspired by Queensland’s innovation ecosystem and the networks, energy and expansive thinking that drives it.
