Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

Fire as a Land Management Tool

The Valuing our Volcanic Plains project is running a Fire as a Land Management Tool in Grasslands Field Day.
The event is being held in Melton and buses will transport landholders from the Geelong and Hume areas. The details are below and this is the fire-field-day-invitation.
The field day will include presentation from an ecologist who will discuss how fire can be used to manage areas of native grassland and grassy woodlands to reduce biomass, encourage regeneration and facilitate weed management.
The CFA will discuss how to plan for a burn on your property and how they can help. The afternoon will include a field trip to a local grassland that has had a regular burn regime. This event is a joint event between the Port Phillip and Westernport CMA, Cities of Greeter Geelong, Hume and Melton and is funded through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
