For those that attended the IMBA soil erosion workshop last year, We briefly discussed with Rangers a workshop about plant id and local aboriginal cultural heritage.

Well here is the workshop that the rangers and local bushcare group have been working on.

A good opportunity to understand the plants and ecology that should and should not be on site, and better understand the cultural significance of the lands that we visit.

RSVP BY 14TH SEPTEMBER,2011. PHONE (02)45882400.

We have organised Jacob Philpott who teaches Conservation and Land Management at Richmond TAFE to come out and show people how to identify plants, tell the natives from the weeds when they are similar. Jacob will also talk about why different plants grow in different areas (both native and weed) and demonstrate poisoning techniques for different weeds.

For the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage component we have an archaeologist talking about sites identification and showing us what to look for on the ground. We also have Chris Tobin a Darug Traditional Custodian of that country. Chris will give insights into Yellomundee Regional Park’s significance to Aboriginal people.

All held on site at Yellomundee so I am hoping to make it as practical as possible. The format for the actual Workshop will be finalised when we have an idea of numbers
