South West Catchments Council is collaborating with the Undalup Association to deliver a series of workshops teaching traditional methods of fire management that reduce fire risk to local wildlife and enhance native bushland.
Wadandi/Pibulman Custodian Iszaac (Waalitj) Webb will explain how the traditional owners of the South West region undertake fire management to protect the region’s threatened species, including numbats, western ringtail possums, chuditch and woylies. Knowledge of best practice techniques, including timing, frequency and location of burning, will be passed on to local landholders. They will also have an opportunity to watch a traditional burn take place.
Three workshops will be held throughout May & June:
- Rosa Glen (near Margaret River) on Monday 17th May 2021 from 9am -12pm (register here)
- Walsall (inland from Busselton) on Saturday 12 June 2021 from 9am-12pm (register here)
- Argyle (near Donnybrook) on Saturday 19 June 2021 from 9am –12pm (register here)
This project is supported by South West Catchments Council, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
