On Wednesday 21st March, Bush Heritage's Edgbaston Reserve Manager Shelley Inglis and Freshwater Ecologist Pippa Kern hosted a display at Desert Channels Queensland Field Day at Audreystone Station.
Desert Channels Queensland is a community-based natural resource management body that works to ensure a sustainable social, economic and environmental future for the Queensland section of the Lake Eyre Basin.
The day was well attended by local landholders, contractors and government agencies with speakers talking about a range of different land management topics including woody weed control.
Bush Heritage representatives attend these days to engage with the local community and neighbouring land holders. Reserve Manager Shelley Inglis came home with many new ideas for tackling woody weeds at Edgbaston Reserve as well feral animal monitoring and control.
