Free fire and vegetation management sessions coming to Laidley

The popular fire and vegetation management information night and workshop series is coming to Laidley, giving local landholders the chance to share and learn how to prepare for and manage fire on their properties and in the surrounding landscape.

The fire and vegetation information night is taking place on Thursday 3 June at the Laidley Cultural Centre. The initial information night is of particular interest for landholders because it is focused on fire management roles and responsibilities, fire season planning and preparation, as well as managing fire regimes to protect and enhance native vegetation.

The information night will be followed by a more intensive fire planning workshop on Saturday 12 June at the Mulgowie Hall. Workshop attendees will learn about their land types and native vegetation and will be given a set of free maps for their properties and will receive assistance to develop their own property management planning kit.

It is important to note, that to attend the workshop, you must attend the initial information night.

The Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium (QFBC) and Healthy Land and Water have partnered with Lockyer Valley Regional Council, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and the Rural Fire Service to host the sessions.

Lockyer Valley Regional Council Mayor, Cr Tanya Milligan is encouraging local landholders to take advantage of this opportunity.

“As a region we have been exposed to the detrimental impacts of Mother Nature, and these sessions are a great opportunity for our landholders to put more tools in their belt and better prepare their properties for fire,” Mayor Milligan said.

“These workshops are free of charge, and will give residents the skills needed to both manage fires and access personalised advice and resources.”

Landholders who wish to attend the information night need to RSVP via email to rsvp@hlw.org.au by Friday 28 May. For more information contact Samille Loch-Wilkinson on 0400 910 128.
