Investigate the role of fire in Woowookarung Regional Park. Head out into the field and gather real time data on the impacts of fire and help build the ESRI database using GIS mapping.

Explore fire and its role within local ecosystems. 

Fire plays a unique part in the Australian landscape. It is used as both a management tool and is also a naturally occurring phenomenon. Both have a significant effect on the flora and fauna of a particular area. Despite Australian’s close relationship with the ‘bush’, fire is not a well-understood phenomenon.
