Research after fire

A Seminar titled "Using Fire as a Restoration Tool" was held on Tuesday 4th March 2014 at North Head.
 Presentations were from Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, Fire and Rescue New South Wales, and Willoughby City Council
and a tour of the restoration work within Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS)
was given by Drs Judy and Geoff Lambert stimulated great discussion amongst the 55 participants.
