Australian Association of Bush Regenerators_Online forum

Friday July14, 12.00pm

Peter Dixon, President

Peter will be giving an overview of the Australian Association of Bush Regenerators, its activities and its plans, how it works with communities and community led ecological restoration. He will speak about Facilitated Natural Regeneration (bush regeneration), the importance of maximising ecological resilience in Landcare and other community biodiversity management programs. He will touch on the challenges already being faced by Landcare groups with extreme weather and climate change and how AABR is working towards linking restoration science with on ground regenerators.

Peter has 35 years experience in urban ecological management, bush regeneration, community engagement, education and training, catchment management, program design and grant program management.

Now running a small consultancy, Peter was previously Director of the NSW Environmental Trust, the NSW Floodplain Management Grants Program and the NSW Coastal and Estuary Grants Program. As the major external funder to community, NGO and local council environmental management programs in NSW, he gained a detailed understanding of the needs and constraints of grantees and was instrumental in developing programs to meet the needs of applicants and the environment.

He previously led the Sydney Metropolitan Catchment Management Authority and also worked extensively in the Sydney region as a Landcare/Bushcare facilitator and a bush regenerator. In his voluntary capacity, Peter is the convenor of a highly successful Bushcare group on the Duck River in Sydney, he helped to form and run the Volunteer Coordinators’ Network for 20 years (the network of Bushcare and Landcare Coordinators) and is currently President of the Australian Association of Bush Regenerators.
