Murrumbidgee Landcare e-news - December 2017

Printer-friendly version

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

With everyone busy with harvest (and Christmas parties!) there are only a few events coming up, but there are still some interesting activities, including a Tree ID and Seed Collection field day at Oberne, and a weekend of fun environmental activities at Booroowa.

There are also plenty of funding and other opportunities available, including several scholarships for governance and leadership programs. Be sure to take a look at what is available - perhaps 2018 is the year for you to take the plunge and challenge yourself with one of these excellent development opportunities!

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.

Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable festive season, and we look forward to another great year of Landcaring in 2018!

Nicole and the team at MLi
