Firestick Project

A Wurundjeri-led project in partnership with Dixons Creek Primary School, supported by Yarra Ranges Council and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Victoria

The devastation that followed Black Saturday had a significant impact on the Dixons Creek community. Through the Firestick project, students learn about fire management from Indigenous Elders. The project helps both the children and wider community establish a positive relationship with fire. Learn more
