On the 19 and 20th July, members of the Landcare NSW team were fortunate to attend two great events held by Murray Landcare Collective.
Day 1 was the mini muster at Corowa, which was a facilitated session covering several topics including the NSW Landcare Program 2023-2027 funding bid. This featured a workshop session to discuss the next phase of the program, what has gone well, what may require improvement or removal from the next program and any innovative ideas that could be attractive to Government. There were some great thoughts shared and the feedback given aligned closely with that from the recent stakeholder workshops.
Day 2 was spent at the picturesque Waterfront Pavilion in Urana and included updates from over 20 members of the collective on key achievements and priorities, along with discussions on topics ranging from drought resilience to carbon farming. During lunch, participants were also treated to a tour of the adjacent man-made lake that surrounds the aquatic centre.
The trip allowed new members to Landcare NSW to network, meet members in person (including our partners at LLS) and get a full appreciation of the wide variety of groups and activities throughout the region, as well as gathering valuable advice that will help shape the future program and strategic business case.
We would like to thank Paula Sheehan and Corowa District Landcare for inviting Landcare NSW and organising a wonderful event.
