Lismore Biosecurity Forum

The inaugural Lismore Biosecurity Forum is on Wednesday 12 June 2019 at the Lismore Showgrounds from 9.00am - 3:00pm.

Drone spraying, wild dogs, ants and biological controls are some of the high-interest topics to be covered by experts who are well regarded in their respective fields.

Lunch will be provided, and an RSVP is essential - call 6623 3847 to book now. This is a free event.

During the lunch break, there will be a live demonstration on how drones are effectively used for aerial spraying.

This forum is ideal for informing people about a variety of biological issues in the local Northern Rivers region and learn about innovative ideas for combatting these issues. The information is essential for landholders and the general public interested in the health and productivity of their land. 

All are welcome - it is a good chance for a group of interested people to meet and have a chat.
