Rangers from Ngulingah are participating in Firesticks training activities and workshops. Through attending Firesticks workshops the rangers are considering implementing strategic burns across their properties to assist with both weed suppression and protection of key cultural sites. The Bundjalung people are the original custodians of the northern coastal areas of NSW and this area continues to hold special significance. One of the key cultural sites is Nimbin Rocks, which was once used as an initiation ground for their young boys. Nimbin Rocks were formed by an ancient, eroded volcanic dyke and is located just south of the Nimbin township. It is the home of a number of threatened or vulnerable flora as well as being an important habitat for the glossy black cockatoo.
