Bushfire Recovery & Regeneration Community Exhibition

Bushfire Recovery at Badja book cover

Local residents have captured photographic observations of recovery, renewal and regeneration in the 18 months since the fires. These photos will provide a permanent exhibition at the Recovery Hub located at 57 Vale Street, Cooma.

Paula Boer, author and citizen scientist, launched her latest and first non-fiction book: Bushfire Recovery at Badja: A Landowner’s Observations. This is a photographic record detailing the author’s property as it recovered from the 2019-20 fires.

This new work captures the author’s observations on her 500-acre property in the northeast of the Snowy Monaro. From snuffling echidnas to mobs of kangaroos, tiny ladybirds to colourful butterflies, intricate orchids to towering eucalypts, this book incorporates over 1,300 photographs, covering over 400 species, labelled with both their common and scientific names.

The Recovery Hub and photo exhibit is open from 10 am to 3 pm, Tuesday to Thursday.
