Badja Fire Roads Workshops
Bega wind rose data shows significant wind changes to the Bega Valley and Triangle region over the last 50 years with the periods of calm more than halving. Facing drying effects across our landscape the question becomes how do we decrease wind velocities, increase shading and moisture retention while also facing the reality of increasingly dangerous fire days.
This workshop series builds on the 2020 Fire Edge Road Groups sharing of fire preparation experiences and ideas.
