Big Scrub Rainforest Day 2020

This year’s topical theme ‘Saving our Rainforests from Fire’

Big Scrub Rainforest Day 2020

This year Big Scrub Rainforest Day, a day that sits very close to our hearts, is taking a new format, in response to Covid19 constraints, providing even greater opportunity for people far and wide to get involved.

To celebrate the 22nd annual event, Big Scrub Landcare is switching to an online format, taking place on Sunday 20th September.

This year’s topical theme ‘Saving our Rainforests from Fire’ will be relevant to all members of our North Coast community as well as communities further afield with two-panel discussions facilitated by well-known ABC journalists Kerry O’Brien and Mick O’Regan.

The first panel will discuss the impacts of the fires on our rainforests and the lessons that should be learned. The second panel will discuss what strategies and on-ground actions should be pursued and how bushfire management should be improved to minimise the impacts of future major bushfires on our local rainforests, specifically focusing on the recent bushfires in our local area in and around Nightcap National Park, with emphasis on our significant Gondwanan rainforests.
