Detailed Information:
AABR was established in 1986 out of concern for the continuing survival and integrity of bushland and its dependent fauna in or near bushland areas, and seeks new members and friends for promoting good work practices in natural areas. The Association's aim is to foster and encourage sound ecological practices of bushland management by qualified people, and to promote the study and practice of Bush Regeneration. •Our members are people with recognised practical experience in bushland work (voluntary or paid) over a period of 2 years and a pass in an approved Bush Regeneration course. Our friends are people offering support to our constitutional charter by attending meetings, subscribing to the Newsletter or helping in any way. •AABR publishes a 2 monthly newsletter to which anyone interested is welcome to subscribe. Any articles that assist our work and increase our understanding and appreciation of ecological processes are eagerly sought. •AABR is well represented in the Bush Regeneration workforce, especially in NSW, Australia, and is expanding interstate. Many members now hold senior positions in Councils, TAFE and other Government bodies or have formed their own Bush Regeneration Companies. Others work to develop practical skills and facilitate natural regeneration process in disturbed areas. •Our members have a common interest in doing competent and effective work. AABR identifies the skills and status of bush regenerators and promotes this among employers. •AABR includes an educational and social side. Regular seminars are held with knowledgeable people speaking on fauna and flora, geology etc. There are visits to bush regeneration sites, various educational displays and an annual dinner.
