13 Jun 2012 - 6:30pm

The Riverina Highlands Landcare Network invites you to a special dinner event, to hear Mason Crane explain the latest research results on what makes the most wildlife friendly tree plantings in our local area. The dinner will be held from 6.30 pm on Wednesday 13th June, at the Adelong Hotel (middle pub).

In 2001 a team from the Australian National Unversity, led by Prof David Lindenmayer, set up
one of Australia's largest biodiversity studies, covering 184 sites on 48 farms across 23 landscapes between Temora and Howlong.

The initial aim of the project was to examine the contribution that tree planting makes towards wildlife conservation. Over the years the study has evolved to examine all aspect of wildlife conservation on farms, from rocky outcrop management to how best to design tree plantings.

Ten years later, the project is now at a stage where it can start to examine long term trends in wildlife populations and relate them to things such as changes in vegetation cover and climatic variable. Whilst the project has already uncovered some great insights into our local wildlife, the most exciting research lies ahead, as the study matures. Come along to hear Mason Crane talk about the results of this fascinating research from over 10 years on farms in the southwest slopes!

The cost for dinner and the speaker is $15 per person (includes main meal). Please RSVP by Friday 8th June to Cherie White (Natural Resource Officer, Murrumbidgee CMA):
