Restoring Natural Areas – Soil Translocation and Native Vegetation Community Regeneration

Mark Walters is a Teacher-Ecologist at Ryde TAFE. He teaches CertIII, CertIV and Diploma of Conservation & Land Management.

Topsoil is an undervalued resource for conserving biodiversity. Often this valuable resource is wasted, treated as a contaminated waste or composted for landscaping soils. In this talk Mark will cover some aspects of topsoil translocation as a tool for rehabilitating degraded sites. Mark has carried out, or been a consultant to more than a dozen topsoil translocation projects over the last decade within the Sydney region and has undertaken university research into the topic.
