The recent tragic bushfires in Victoria generated a lot of public comment about current policies for managing woodlands, including a series of comments on this thread, where a post about the Queensland election somehow turned into a debate about whether or not ‘Greens’ were somehow responsible for the enormity of the Victorian fires.
Given the widely varying opinions expressed on the topic, people may be interested in attending a public seminar being held in Brisbane this coming Wednesday night on “The Role of Fire in Protected Area Management”
The seminar is being hosted by the National Parks Association of Queensland. It will examine the use of fire to protect biodiversity and manage natural and multiuse landscapes.
It’s being held at the Mount Coot-tha Auditorium at Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens
When: Wednesday 15th April 2009 7:30pm
