Bushfire Management – Balancing the Risks

 Registration is closed for this event
Community symposium to discuss research, strategies and expectations for fire management in the ACT in a changing environment

PROGRAM


The Australian Capital Territory has had bushfires before and will have bushfires again. We need to keep discussing the risks and hazards and the community expectations on how we might deal with them. How do we best undertake bushfire management to protect human lives while at the same time maintaining the natural values of our local environment?

Join with bushfire managers, conservation officers, community representatives and a range of knowledge-holders to help look at future bushfire management in the ACT.

The Symposium also includes a free field trip to Aranda Bushland to look at the effects of bushfire management.
