Murrumbidgee Landcare e-news - March 2018

Printer-friendly version

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

This month there are some great opportunities to enjoy the beautiful weather before it gets too cold (and - hopefully - too wet!!) The second Outdoor Movie Night is on in Wagga, there is an Autumn Bird Walk in Grenfell, the Rice Industry Field Day will be held this week in Yanco, and there is a great School Holiday Frog Workshop coming up in Gunning.

There are also lots of funding opportunities around at the moment, so be sure to take a look and talk to your Local Landcare Coordinator if you have some ideas for your group and would like a hand to get things happening.

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.
