Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

Launch with Bill Gammage

Bill Gammage challenged us to see our landscape with new eyes and to look to the indigenous past for clues to managing our land for the future. His was an historical lens. There are many others, including your own.

Bill spoke about complexities – of species and their management in relation to fire, of  the relationships between us and our land. He also talked of creating alliances – many unlikely – to forge better understanding, protection and enhancement of our environment.

We hope to have the audio recording up on the website very soon. Read John Baulch’s report on the talk here: bill gammage report

If you are interested in more reading in relation to fire, ecology and history, our Fire and Biodiversity session last year provided some resources and reading. Do your own research and explore more widely, both on-ground and on-line. You may also like to join, or view, the Forum Discussion after Bill’s talk. Or participate in some, or all, of our workshops, to get even more local. Note the March 1 workshop is now fully booked.
