Murrumbidgee Landcare e-news - May 2018

Printer-friendly version

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

It has been a busy few weeks at Murrumbidgee Landcare, as we work to develop a strategic plan for Landcare in the Riverina. Thank you to everyone who came along to our workshops and completed the survey – your input has been priceless, and we will endeavour to get the outcomes to you as soon as we can. If you haven’t yet had your say, there is still time to complete the survey!

The next month has a great range of activities on offer, including a “Who’s living on my land” workshop at Yerong Creek, a Climate Conversation at Yass, and a series of workshops with Cam Nicolson aimed at helping you to improve your farm decision-making.

There are also heaps of grants available at the moment, so have a look and see if there is anything that may suit a project you have in mind. If you’d like some assistance, remember you can always contact your Local Landcare Coordinator or the Murrumbidgee Landcare office.
