Hands Healing the Land Community Science Conference

Boodja Moort Kaardijin


During this one-day Community Science Conference, speakers from all walks of ecological restoration, natural resource management and environmental education came together and shared their real-life experiences and knowledge with over 100 attendees, giving people a chance to learn, connect and build community.

Land care practitioners, scientists and volunteers discussed how they are making a difference in caring for our unique flora and fauna, learn from traditional owners and build community.
