After-fire Warrumbungle National Park

The bushfires that ravaged Warrumbungle National Park in 2013 have become the focus of a major research and recovery program by NSW National Parks. The program has multiple components including studies on fire behaviour, cultural heritage, soils and water, native Australian animals, vegetation and fire management, and will include citizen science.
