Land holders will visit properties with nature refuge status and they’ll hear how to establish and maintain nature refuges and natural assets in the Wet Tropics region.

Topics will also include other protection opportunities, weed identification and management, pest management, wildlife corridors and developing practical habitat plans.

Speakers will be from Ecosure, Terrain NRM, the Wet Tropics Management Authority, council and conservation groups.

The Atherton event is on Thursday 11 May, starting at Mt Quincan Crater Retreat. Participants will visit two properties during the workshop which runs from 8.30am-4pm with morning tea and lunch provided.
