March 17th: Planting, Properties and Conservation

6th March, 2018

Do you want to learn how to manage your property to preserve, enhance and protect its biodiversity?

The Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council is facilitating a free seminar as part of the Blue Sky Festival. The seminar will provide an opportunity to share information about the flora and fauna in the Perth Hills and how you can get involved to protect them for the future.

The seminar is open to everyone, however the talks are aimed at landholders who have an interest in the environment of Perth Hills and want to know more about how to manage their properties to benefit biodiversity.

There will be a FREE nest box raffle for attendees.
