Management Training Program for Bushcare Groups and volunteersThis workshop was held at Downfall Creek Bushland Centre on Sunday 14 September to determine those targets and priorities required by KBCN bushcare groups and organisations to improve their effectiveness with bushcare management along the Brook.
A special team from Volunteering Qld, led by Mark Creyton, supported by Kedron Brook Catchment Branch (Wildlife Qld.) directed focused discussions to determine improved management processes and future targets for the catchment network.
It is planned that a more detailed followup workshop, based upon the outcomes from these group discussions, will be held over the next three months.
