When looking around your local landscape for bushland, people often look for National Parks, State Forests, remnant vegetation on farms or beside rivers. In agricultural areas where the land is used for cropping and livestock pursuits the land on the roadsides and in TSR’s are often overlooked.
Getting people together is an important part of protecting roadside vegetation. Seventeen people attended a wonderful workshop sharing their experiences about local bushland on roadsides and TSR’s. Site assessment sheets were used to establish a bushland health rating for the vegetation which can now be used to monitor for deterioration and plan for action.
