Are you intersted in caring for native and natural environments?

In this short course you will learn about bush regeneration. Most people associate bush regeneration with weed removal. It is important to remember bush regeneration is not just about weed removal, it is a ‘whole of environment’ integrated approach that encourages the bush to ‘bounce back’. Learn about the impact of weeds, stormwater and altered fire regimes and the basic skills required to assist in the maintenance of bushland areas. Involving both theory and hands-on practical components you will learn how to restore biodiversity and improve habitat quality on your property or somewhere else.

Course testimonials:

  • Learnt a lot and gave us the confidence to continue bush regeneration work on our property at Wilsons Creek. Jacqui has enormous experience and depth of knowledge and is an excellent teacher. The components on plant identification were excellent; it was terrific to see properties and public places where Bush Regeneration is in action; we've even commenced work on a Management Plan! Great course, thanks Jacqui
  • Great tuition, good to get out into the bush.
  • Excellent course, I learnt so much and would enthusiastically attend Bush Regeneration if a second course is offered. Jacqui is so knowledgeable and experienced and I enjoyed her style of teaching very much. I notice trees and plants in a different way now!
