Landcare Snapshot 17 March 2016

Below is this week’s summary of events, grants and scholarships presented on Landcare’s weekly segment with Anne Delaney on Riverina ABC Breakfast Radio.


Bushfire Plan Workshops Following on from several “Women on fire” workshops held last year, there will be two free follow-up sessions to help participants complete their personal bushfire plan and checklist. They will be held at:

·         Junee Rural Fire Shed: Tuesday 22nd March, 2 pm to 6.30 pm

·         Ladysmith Hall: Wednesday 23rd March, 2 pm to 6.30 pm


The days are ‘drop-in’ sessions, so you can just come at a time that suits you and stay for as long as you like. There will be no formal workshop activities, we will just be there ready to help you put your plan together! We will also have a range of other resources available for you to take, including:

•             Landscaping for bushfire

•             Establishing shelterbelts on your farm

•             Plus a range of useful resources from the RFS and Riverina Bluebell.


Please feel free to invite along any other friends, neighbours or family members who you think may be interested – you do not need to have attended the original workshops to come to these sessions. Further details contact Nicole Maher, Landcare Project Officer, Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc . Mobile: 0438 452 814


Weekly news reminder: If you ever have any events, interesting news or project observations to add for our weekly radio notes please let us know ASAP. We try our best to cover all Landcare related activities across the Riverina and Murray but we could miss something. Also, we can’t guarantee everything will be mentioned on the radio but we will try our best. Broadcasting at 6.40am each Thursday. If you would like to receive these snapshots as a weekly email, please contact Bindi at
