Traditional Indigenous Burning Information Session
October 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join Wurundjeri Elder Uncle Dave Wandin to learn about how traditional indigenous fire practices are being reintroduced into contemporary land management for the healing of Culture and Country through partnerships with Nillumbik Shire Council and the Christmas Hills Landcare Network.
Traditional burning generally results in a cool, gentle, creeping fire that is allowed to take a natural path through the bush resulting in better ecological outcomes, reduced safety risk, and requires less resources to manage than contemporary prescribed burns.
Note: This is an information session and no burning will take place.
