Introduction to Bushcare Workshop

Topics covered include: bush regeneration methods, techniques and tools, weed identification, site safety, habitat for wildlife, native plant communities, resilience and site strategies. Bushcare trainer Geoff Bakewell will run through everything you need to know to get the most out of your Bushcare experience.
