Bush Skills for the Hills (BSFTH) 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. 2018 BSFTH Workshops Program

The program aims to provide young people with opportunities to:
