Presentations from the third annual Biodiversity Forum
The third Growing Connections Biodiversity Forum was held on Friday 30 June 2017 and was attended by around 100 people from the community, environmental groups, agencies and local government.
This year's Forum celebrated the Biosphere's Growing Connections Project, funded by the Australian Government, which came to a close on 30 June, with presentations from the Biosphere and Growing Connections partner organisations (Mal Legg talking about works we have done around the City of Casey, Glenn Brooks-MacMillan and team members from Cardinia Catchment Landcare and Dave Bateman from Bass Coast Landcare Network) about their involvement with the project.
The Bunurong Land Council presented on various aspects of Indigenous culture and the Forum's keynote presentation, by Vanessa Craigie from DELWP, covered the new statewide Biodiversity Plan and how we can all get involved in delivering the desired outcomes.
