The Bushfire conference has been running since 1997 and provides a unique opportunity for NSW to discuss the challenges facing fire and land management through the lens of conservation.
Previous conferences have focused on the role of fire in managing feral species and weeds, how fire can be used to build healthy landscapes and building a resilient environment through resilient people.
This year’s conference will be looking at different fire intensities and how they link into climate change, fire ecology, ferals, weeds and restoration and community resilience.
