Land Leaders (Senior Secondary/Early Tertiary)

$0.00

Dates: 05/07/2022 – 07/07/2022

Land Leaders is a leadership development and extension camp for young people in Yr 10 -12 on the Far South Coast of NSW. Early tertiary ages (18-19) are also accepted to the program provided that you obtain an online volunteer working with children check.

Land Leaders is particularly targeted towards fire-affected students (Bega Valley Shire students will have priority – 18 places available).

Land Leaders pulls together scientific and community knowledge developed at the Crossing through the formation of the Badja Edge Fire Roads Groups. Young people who attend the Land Leaders camp will leave with new eyes for the natural environment of the Far South Coast, a greater understanding of the role fire plays in the ecosystem, and a deeper understanding of the many ways human landscapes can be designed for fire-retardance.

The Camp starts 10am, Tuesday July 5th at Greendale Farm at the end of Green Tyrells Rd in Coolagolite. Tuesday night is a tent camp, Wednesday night students stay in a train carriage bunkhouse. On Thursday the group returns by canoe to Bermagui for a 1.00pm finish at the Bermagui bridge boat ramp.  (should this camp not achieve minimum numbers of 12 a fallback date of Friday 26 to Sunday 28 August has been identified – if the camp is moved to this second date it will start at 5pm on the Friday after school at the same location and finish at 1pm on Sunday at the same location as above)

The first day is a bushwalk to a tent camp passing through the edges of the Badja fire. On the way we will look at how the fire affected ecosystem is recovering. This will also include time to look at fire-retardant plants which coped well with the blaze and to learn about fuel assessment. The second day we walk to The Crossing and tour the different layers of fire preparedness and protection at the camp and assist with maintenance and improvement of a fire retardant shelterbelt.  The last day is a canoe journey to Bermagui to finish at 1pm at the Bridge boat ramp.

Full scholarship support to attend the pilot version of this camp was provided by the Bega Valley Shire Community Fund and the Cobargo Community Bushfire Relief Fund in March 2022.  Further support for fire affected students to attend this second version of the camp in 2022 at no cost is provided thanks to St Vinnies. Contact josh@thecrossingland.org.au with any questions you may have.  Students who are 18+ are asked to obtain a free volunteer working with children check online to attend this camp – please advise Josh of your WWCC number after doing this.

Since July 2020 The Crossing has been working with support from the Bermagui RFS and SES to facilitate fire road group discussions. Many experiences have been shared at these gatherings and many fire preparedness actions and design ideas have come from the people who have attended. This weekend workshop builds on those learnings as well as research into long term wind data in the Bega Valley Shire, Australian and international shelterbelt design and Australian fire retardant plant information.
