MARCH 2, 2017: Australian Association of Bush Regenerators (AABR)
"AABR promotes the study and practice of ecological restoration, and fosters and encourages effective management of natural areas by qualified people, based on sound ecological principles" http://www.aabr.org.au/about-aabr/joining-aabr/
On Thursday March 2 AABR conducted a workshop at the Council Chambers, Broken Hill. The workshop focused on celebrating the Regeneration Area surrounding Broken Hill, with the view to establishing a 'Restoration Industry Morris Award'. This national award would celebrate one of the first successful restoration projects in Australia. The regeneration project was commenced by Albert Morris in the 1930's and continued by his wife Margaret after his death. The Regeneration Area is today an area that surrounds and protects the city of Broken Hill from raging dust storms. Albert Morris founded the Barrier Field Naturalists, now in their 95th year of operations. Albert and Margaret Morris with the field naturalists, the local community and mining company's commenced the process of native bush revegetation, to reduce the affects of wind erosion and this innovative work earned Albert Morris a reputation as a pioneer environmentalist. His ideas have since been adopted across Australia and the world.
