The trip is now cancelled due to Covid restrictions.
The plans were as follows:
APS NSW is establishing an interest group in which we share and acquire greater knowledge and skills in how to support regeneration, revegetation, restoration of NSW natural landscapes, leading to greater resilience.
One objective of the Society is to support the protection and conservation of native flora and fauna, which can be achieved by the conservation of natural environments, habitat management and the restoration of environments that have been degraded through human activity.
This trip will provide those attending the opportunity to acquire a greater understanding of native plants and habitat resilience and what individuals and collective groups can do to assist.
We have arranged to visit seven properties in the Central West; at Forest Reef near Milthorpe, Dubbo, Narromine and Toongi. Six of the owners are actively involved in restoring the natural revegetation, partially or completely on their properties. The property owners are enthusiastic to show and discuss with us what they have achieved in restoring their properties.
Three of the properties we will visit are owned by two members of APS NSW; Jean and Basil Baldwin at Forest Reef and Andrew and Jenny Knop who have properties at Dubbo and Narromine.
This is an exciting initiative by APS NSW, which will provide those attending a wonderful opportunity to explore the Central West of NSW and see what some of our innovative and committed property owners are doing to conserve natural habitats.
If you are interested in joining us from 15-18 October please register. We will then send you the full itinerary, locations of the properties we will be visiting and a summary of what the owners have achieved.
There is no charge for this trip. However, the cost of food, travel and accommodation will be at your own expense.
You are required to register if you plan to join us. This is so we can let the property owners know how many people they can expect.
