Better Bush on Farms Conference

Wednesday, 1 Jan 2003

Getting the best out of bush blocks is the focus of a one day conference at Charles Sturt University (CSU) tomorrow, Wednesday 19 September. Co-hosted by CSU’s Institute for Land, Water and Society and CSIRO, the one-day Better Bush on Farms Conference will gather researchers and practitioners to discuss the key questions and challenges around developing better “bush blocks” on farms. Problems such as looking after remnant vegetation and paddock trees on farms, the effects of fencing and controlled grazing and the ecological effects of efforts to conserve remnant vegetation will be addressed by speakers from CSU, CSIRO, other universities and government organisations. The meeting will be of particular use for catchment planners and implementation staff, public land managers, vegetation growers, landholders and researchers. The event will be held in the CD Blake Theatre on CSU’s Albury-Wodonga Campus, off Elizabeth Mitchell Drive, Thurgoona.
