Sandhills Management & Rehabilitation Field Day - Thursday 31 August 2017

You are invited to Oolambeyan National Park to view one of the best examples of the Endangered Ecological Community Sandhill Pine Woodland in the Riverina. These woodlands are critical to the health of the region, supporting plants and animals and providing on-farm production benefits when integrated into farming systems.

Find out how best to manage livestock grazing, how to revegetate sandhills through natural regeneration, planting and direct seeding, and the funding currently available to land-holders.

We will talk openly about the challenges and successes of managing sandhills including rabbits, biocontrol, boxthorn and weeds.

There will be demonstrations of boxthorn removal using brush-cutters, rabbit control techniques and tree seeding machinery, plus experts from many different fields available to answer your questions, including ANPC Project Manager Martin Driver.

Morning tea, BBQ lunch and drinks will be provided.

Meet: at Oolambeyan Homestead in the park at 9:30am. Oolambeyan National Park is approximately 90km south east of Hay and 130km north east of Deniliquin, NSW. Entry to the homestead is via the Conargo Road. Please ask for directions if you need them when you RSVP.

RSVP by Monday 28 August to:

Michael Fayle at Riverina LLS 0409 784 752 or Email
Graham Fifield at Greening Australia 0447 436 715 or Email

The Field Day is being hosted by Riverina Local Land Services and Greening Australia.

Successful Threatened Plants Translocation Information Day held on 1 August at the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney. 

Organised by the ANPC and the Threatened Species Recovery Hub, with support from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, ‘Plants Going Places’ attracted a capacity audience of 80 people (with a waiting list) demonstrating a huge interest in plant translocation.

Attendees included threatened species project coordinators, environmental consultants, local government officers, NGOs, NRM organisations, bushcare volunteers and community members who were involved, or had an interest, in policy and/or the implementation of planned translocations (including population augmentation and/or establishment of new populations). Local and national experts held a range of presentations on provenance, orchids, the science of translocation, monitoring, licensing, policy and numerous case studies including Asterolasia buxifoliaFontainea orariaPersoonia pauciflora, and Wollemia nobilis. Download the program here.

All powerpoint presentations were audio recorded and will be uploaded to the web soon, so watch this space!
