The Black Saturday post-fire surveys

In 2009, severe bushfires tore through mountain ranges to the north and east of Melbourne. Stuart Thyer will describe the work put in by LRRSA ‘field work’ teams formed in the fires’ aftermath to explore timber tramways that once crossed much of the now burnt out bush land.

AGM and more photos from the Ray Graf collection - part 4
