Landcare Snapshot 11 August 2016

Below is our weekly update covering landcare activities, upcoming events and funding presented on Landcare’s weekly segment with Anne Delaney on Riverina ABC Breakfast Radio live from ~6.40am on Thursday mornings.

How lush and green the countryside is looking after so much rain. It’s welcoming to see dams full, contented stock, healthy crops,  farm utes safely salvaged from bogging, and the sun!

Participate in Australia’s first ever National Feral Cat Survey. It only takes five minutes, but will provide critical information. Whether you are a conservation professional, farmer, Indigenous ranger or member of the community, please click on the link and help us get a national picture of community action in the fight against #extinction. Here is the link to the survey – https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6SArCuGiGitdi6h

Henty Field Days Landcare Shed Riverina and Murray displays are tracking well for an informative and interactive few days. Shed helpers get a free pass into the Field Days so let Kimberley know (kbeattie@mli.org.au) if you would like to join us for a couple of hours talking to the punters about Landcare and all the good work you do.

Need bird boxes?  The Henty Men’s Shed recently constructed 100 nest boxes for Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc. for the Cross Property Project. The guys there were super-efficient and really easy to deal with. The boxes were well made and they were very reasonably priced at $40-. The contact for the Men’s Shed is Tony O’Brien – 0407 216 877.
