Understories 
Landcare led Bushfire Recovery Program

Understories is a community project fostering natural and community resilience and minimises the risk, impact and consequences of fire disasters in the rainforests of South-East Queensland (QLD). Over the coming months members of the local community can participate in interactive arts-based workshops, learn about the native ecology and help develop an Ecological Management Plan to build capacity for environmental bushfire mitigation. Read about how we are doing this one day at a time below
