Are you keen to learn more about how to go native to help our local plants and animals flourish and meet like-minded people who are making a difference?
We will be hosting the Gold Coast Landcare Forum on Saturday 8th October at Robina Community Centre.
The one day free forum is open to anyone who is eager to go native for the protection and conservation of Gold Coast’s natural areas and waterways, and discover the vast array of opportunities available to get involved and care for the environment with Landcare.
Keynote speakers will include Griffith University’s Professor Tor Hundloe, who will discuss the transformation of Gold Coast’s environment from wilderness to urban ecosystem and Professor Catherine Pickering, who will talk about how to embrace technology for conservation and environmental protection.
Patrick Brabant, Founder of EnviroWarrior & Ambassador for Naturally GC, at the age of 13, will leave everyone inspired about the future.
There will also be engaging workshops and panel discussions to spark the real outcome go native to encourage our local native plants and animals to flourish within a rapidly urbanising city.
The Gold Coast is rapidly urbanising and more than ever before we need to encourage everyone to plant native plants for habitat. The benefits are endless, from beautifully restored conservation areas for everyone to enjoy, to native wildlife in your backyard.
Whether you’re new to Landcare or experienced in bush regeneration, the forum will be an opportunity to connect with like-minded people, share ideas and hear from the experts.
Our small, yet, dedicated working group have pulled together a fantastic program. This is our first major network forum since 2009 and we look forward to seeing you there.
