Murrumbidgee Landcare e-news - September 2017

Printer-friendly version

Welcome to the September edition of Murrumbidgee Landcare's e-news!

The 2017 NSW Landcare and LLS Conference is coming up next month, and with the conference being held just down in Albury it is a great chance to get involved.

On Day One of the Conference, you can help guide the future direction of Landcare NSW by attending the Landcare Muster. You can also contribute to the Muster by completing the online survey, or hosting a Mini-Muster with your local Group.

The full Conference is shaping up to be a huge event, with a packed program of presentations, workshops and field trips all centred around the themes of agriculture, biodiversity, water and Aboriginal Landcare. There are many different registration opens, from single sessions through to the complete 3-day package, and there are special prices for individual community members too. Early registration prices will end on 25 September, so now is the time to purchase your tickets!

There are also lots of grants and other opportunities available at the moment, including vacancies for Murrumbidgee Landcare's Executive Officer, and Landcare NSW's State Landcare Coordinator. These will both be fantastic career opportunities for the right people, so if you are interested be sure to check them out.

If you would like more information on anything, or would like to talk to someone about Landcare in your region, please feel free to contact your Local Landcare Coordinator or the Murrumbidgee Landcare office.
