The course

Brings together leading researchers and experts to share up to date knowledge and thinking about this landscape in change.

It is feld based and participants will work in small groups. It emphasises ecological understanding and relationships and techniques that improve observation and data collection skills which can then be applied to other areas.

Participants will gain:

  • a better understanding of the distribution, natural values and ecological processes of Box Ironbark landscapes, past and present;
  • an understanding of the impact of human use on the ecosystem, past and present;
  • practical skills in observation, description, survey, analysis, interpretation, map reading and ecosystem monitoring of flora, fauna, geomorphology and soils;
  • opportunity to apply new skills and to collate and communicate information collected from the feld;
  • resources to help plan for enhanced ecologically sustainable management outcomes for Box Ironbark remnants on private and public land.
