Managing your property in climate change

Climate change is having major impacts on our natural environment.  Hotter, drier seasons, reductions in rainfall and increases in extreme weather events are increasing the pressures on ecosystems and native species.  It is important to recognise what can be achieved through local conservation action.

With funding from the Victorian Government, Trust for Nature is organising a series of field days at its reserves or on covenanted properties to help you understand how to mitigate the impacts of climate change on your property. 

If you have a Trust for Nature conservation covenant on your property it would be great to see you at one of the events below.  

Below is the current schedule of events planned for this financial year.

For more information, please contact Doug Robinson on dougr@tfn.org.au or 0408 512 441.
