Bushfire recovery webinar
Do you live in an area that was recently affected by bushfires? Maybe your group is getting involved in recovery efforts, or you’ve received funding towards project.
In our upcoming webinar you can hear from a Landcare Facilitator heavily involved in the recovery efforts following the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires.
Chris Cobern from the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network in Victoria was heavily involved in the recovery efforts following the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009. He worked with local communities, government, and volunteers for many years to help the landscape heal and recover. In our upcoming webinar Chris will chat about how he navigated issues around sourcing funding and volunteers, providing training, supporting local landholders, and what he’s learnt that can help groups and organisations working in similar circumstances today. Chris will also be joined by Landcare Australia’s Rowan Ewing, who will give an update on our bushfire recovery fund activities to date, and what’s planned for the coming months.
Recovering after bushfires – what role can Landcare play? will take place at 2pm (AEST) on Tuesday, August 4th, through the Landcarer platform, and will last around 45 minutes.
