This field trip will provide an opportunity to see and discuss a variety of burn strategies employed by Willoughby City Council's bushland team as well as gaining hands-on experience with a flame weeder.

The field trip will explore the outcomes of multiple ecological burns that have been conducted over the past 15 years at Artarmon Reserve.

The field trip will also include a hands-on flame weeder demonstration and discussion on their use including where they have been used successfully and unsuccessfully, the risk management associated with their use and a practical opportunity for hands-on.

Staff from Willoughby City Council will be hosting the tour with contractors present to share their expertise with the flame weeder.
