The Department of Parks and Wildlife is holding a Banksia Woodland Management Workshop on Friday 16th June 2017 from 9:45am – 4.30pm at the University Club of Western Australia (UWA, Hackett Drive, Crawley WA).
We are planning a packed program of 21 speakers giving five, 15 and 20-minute talks for community and professional land managers of banksia woodland. Beginning with an overview of banksia woodlands on the Swan Coastal Plain and their recent federal listing as a threatened ecological community, Parks and Wildlife staff will then share outcomes from five years of the Banksia Woodland Restoration Project, as well as research on fire recovery and weed management. To follow, sessions will showcase studies from respected academics and researchers on the topics of dieback, groundwater, genetics, fire, and fauna, and feature case studies of banksia woodland management from local government and community perspectives. An opportunity for informal discussion will follow. The workshop is a free event with lunch, afternoon tea and refreshments provided.
