Snow Gums face a massive threat from the spread of dieback which is caused by a native beetle – and super charged by climate change, and localised collapse of snow gum woodlands due to more frequent fires.
Please join our citizen science project to map the extent of this loss.
Over the summer of 2023/ 24, Friends of the Earth will continue its field work to map the recovery and loss of snow gum woodlands in the Victorian high country.
The first one for summer will happen on Monday November 6 (this is the Cup long weekend for many people). It will happen the day after the free guided walks on the Dargo High Plains (more details here).
What will the day involve?
This trip will visit fire affected areas to investigate how well they are recovering after the January 2020 Tabletop fire.
You will need:
- Good walking shoes or boots
- Warm clothing
- Gaiters recommended (this is real snake country)
- Water bottle, sunscreen, snacks, any medicine you need, sunhat, etc
Where to meet
Meet at JB Plain (between Mt Hotham alpine village and Dinner Plain (on the Great Alpine road at 9.30am for a 10pm start).
If you rsvp you will be sent full details on the trip prior to the event.
This is a free event.
