Landcare Australia is hosting an upcoming webinar that is sure to be of interest to anyone involved in bushfire recovery efforts.

Recovering after bushfires - what role can Landcare play? will take place at 2pm (AEST) on Tuesday, August 4, 2020.

Chris Cobern from the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network in Victoria was heavily involved in the recovery efforts following the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009.

He worked with local communities, government, and volunteers for many years to help the landscape heal and recover.

In this webinar Chris will chat about how he navigated issues around sourcing funding and volunteers, providing training, supporting local landholders, and what he's learnt that can help groups and organisations working in similar circumstances today.

Chris will also be joined by Landcare Australia's Rowan Ewing, who will give an update on our bushfire recovery fund activities to date, and what is planned for the coming months.

The session will last around 45 minutes, and once you're logged into Landcarer you will have the opportunity to connect with Chris and ask him questions.

If you can't make the live session you can register anyway, and Landcare will send you a link to the recording afterwards.
