Bush Skills for the Hills

Bush Skills for the Hills is a series of free, hills-focussed workshops for the community. The workshops are a refreshing mix of information and practical hands-on sessions designed to give participants both the why and how of managing land, bush and creeks in the hills environment.

Workshops are often run in conjunction with the Bush Skills 4 Youth program.

Please be aware workshops book out quickly, so it is best to register early to guarantee your place.
