Join local landholder Karla Sperling on her 62 Ha property on Stockyard Mountain and learn about how she has been working to enhance and protect native vegetation on her property for 23 years.
Karla has years of experience in working towards rehabilitating woodland on her property and will talk about her experiences, challenges, key learnings, and techniques she uses.
Karla will also talk about land use and managing native vegetation she has now put under a Voluntary Conservation Agreement.
Participants will then have an opportunity to work alongside Karla and local bush regenerator Lynne Kavanagh, and get their hands dirty. Lynne will also be on hand to share her expertise and discuss effective techniques used in bush regeneration.
