Reviving Cultural Burning in the Lockyer
Wirrinyah successfully gained funding from the Landcare Australia Bushfice Recovery Grants to revive cultural burning practices in the Lockyer Valley. This project is a follow on from the Lockyer Valley Regional Council's series of cultural burn workshops where Traditional Custodians, the Indigenous Firesticks Alliance, Local Council representatives, Landcare groups and landholders came together to observe and participate in cultural burning demonstrations. This project will include a series of cultural burns across several private properties in the Lockyer Valley as training sites for Wirrinyah staff. It is exciting to think that after a cultural burn we can imagine what the landscape is meant to be, and the wildlife can enjoy their natural habitats again.
