Please join us for the 2015 Land for Wildlife Forum to be held on Friday, 7 August at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability, Waverton - with a field trip to the Southern Highlands on Saturday, 8 August.
The Forum is a great opportunity to meet other landholders who have a similar interest in managing their properties to include biodiversity values.
We have a great line up of speakers - including Penny Figgis AM speaking on landscape conservation and Jamie Pittock from the Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists. Hear about the Great Eastern Ranges and updates on LFW around the State.
About the Forum
The NSW Land for Wildlife forum is an opportunity for private landholders, government agencies and other interested parties to come together and showcase the benefits of conservation by landholders.
With guest speakers and displays, the forum will bring together environmental leaders with private landholders:
Promoting the practical benefits of Land for Wildlife, including on-ground support, targeted training and workshops.
Providing a field trip to the Southern Highlands we will see first hand what Land for Wildlife has achieved.
Creating natural connections with current Land for Wildlife members and partners from across New South Wales exchanging information and sharing ideas.
