Science in the community: applying theory to practice

Embedding sustainable food, water and energy practices into our community involves collaborating with others who share our goals and interests, from primary producers through to other land managers, including those concerned with fire and water. We’ve developed a wide – and growing – range of outreach programs that give graduate and undergraduate students and our academic staff the opportunity to explore, apply and advance our ability to create positive impacts on the terrestrial environment.
