FIRE management and native vegetation will be the focus of a free information night in Kilcoy next month.

Somerset Regional Council will partner with the South-East Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium, Healthy Land and Water and Rural Fire Service Queensland to host the session on Wednesday, 13 November.

The night will cover fire management roles and responsibilities, fire season planning and preparation, and managing fire regimes to protect and enhance native vegetation from 6pm to 8.30pm at the Kilcoy Visitor Information Centre, 41 Hope Street.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said landowners who were interested in improving their awareness and understanding of how to prepare for and manage fire on their land were encouraged to attend.

“A follow up workshop will be held in Kilcoy on Saturday, 23 November for landowners who want to learn more about their land types and native vegetation and develop maps and plans to manage fire and other threats like weeds, pests and erosion,” Cr Lehmann said.

“To take part in this workshop, landowners must first attend the information night and register online with Healthy Land and Water by Monday, 18 November.

“Registration is not required for the 13 November information night, and light supper will be provided.”
