Murrumbidgee Landcare e-news - November 2017

Printer-friendly version

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

It has been a busy month, with lots of successful events taking place, including the 2017 NSW Landcare and LLS Conference. The NSW Landcare Award winners were also announced - congratulations to all the winners, including our very own Cross Property Planning project, which won the Australian Government’s “Excellence in Sustainable Farm Practices” Award!

There have been some changes at MLi with Maddy Gorham, our much-loved Local Landcare Coordinator for the mid-Murrumbidgee, moving on to a new role. However we are very excited to welcome Anne Duncan, who started last week as MLi’s new Executive Officer. We look forward to Anne helping MLi to power on through the coming years.

It is raining as I write this, with just over 6 mm in the gauge and (hopefully) more to come over the next few days. Hopefully you are receiving some of the rain too; and a nice wet day is also the perfect opportunity to take your time reading this newsletter, and plan some activities for the coming months!

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.

Nicole and the team at MLi
