ANPC WORKSHOP: Jewels in the landscape: managing significant native vegetation remnants 21 - 2012 Moree NSW

The ANPC is hosting it's final workshop in the Jewels in the Landscape series 20 - 21 November 2012, Moree NSW.

This two day workshop will provide participants with the skills required to plan, implement and monitor a project to manage and restore significant native vegetation remnants.

  • identifying the natural values of a site and its threats;
