Big Scrub Rainforest Day 20th September 2020

What a great organisation that has planted heaps of trees and created a lot of interest in regeneration of rainforest remnant and protecting what little we have left.

Here is your Brunswick River Report

The BOM has predicted a la nino weather pattern for this spring and summer. It means wetter than average with higher rainfall. The Bruns gets NSW highest rainfall at 3 metres a year and this year we are close to average so far.

Last year the Bruns got approximately ¼ of its average rainfall, causing severe drought and bush fires. What shocked a lot of locals and the scientists was it was so dry that we saw rainforest burning, which is unheard of.

Rainforest always offered a refuge for animals and humans and its ecological importance can not be understated.

Big Scrub Rainforest day will be held remotely this year, Sunday 20th September. Join the fiery discussions to celebrate Big Scrub Rainforest Day 2020. To celebrate the 22nd annual event, Big Scrub Landcare is switching to an online format.

Expert panel discussions

This year Big Scrub Rainforest Day is going online, providing even greater opportunity to get involved. Join us for two panel discussions facilitated by well-known ABC journalists Kerry O’Brien and Mick O’Regan focused on the bushfires in and around Nightcap National Park and their impact on Gondwana and lowland subtropical rainforests. Free registration will grant access to the footage release, airing 6 PM Sunday 20th September.
