Welcome to Country: Midlands Biodiversity Field Day

  • - (AEST)
  • Nipaluna Nursery
    12 St Johns Avenue, New Town TAS 7008, Australia

The Midlands Biodiversity Hot Spot is Tasmania's only nationally recognised biodiversity hot spot. One of 15 hot spots in Australia declared because of the high numbers of threatened and endangered species. There are 32 nationally threatened species and 180 plants and animals listed as threatened at the state level in this driest part of Tasmania.

You will be welcomed to the story of Aboriginal land management of this fragile landscape with insights into the effects of fire, with spot burning on vegetation. You will be joined by restoration ecologists, researchers, educators, architectural designers, leading farmers and volunteers. With landcare groups, students and the general community interested in natural areas management, you will be inspired and invited to help restore this area by planting local provenance grown by Nipaluna Nursery.

Organiser Nipaluna Nursery is a group of volunteers dedicated to ecological restoration through growing natives for the Midlands and for landcare groups. The event will promote cultural awareness and community engagement.

Bus, lunch, publication and refreshments included.
