Land­care seeks wa­ter­ways in­put

Myrtleford Times - - News -

OVENS Land­care Net­work will hold an af­ter­noon ses­sion at the Gap­sted Hall next Tues­day, to gauge the value com­mu­nity mem­bers have on lo­cal rivers, wet­lands and lakes.

The gath­er­ing will be an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to ad­vise Land­care on what is im­por­tant to them.

All the col­lected in­for­ma­tion will then be used to es­tab­lish vi­tal plans and pro­cesses needed to main­tain favourite lo­cal spots.

The net­work-wide ses­sion will in­clude Land­care groups from Bright to Ruther­glen, right up the King Val­ley and north to Chiltern.

Ovens Land­care fa­cil­i­ta­tor Gayle South said it was im­per­a­tive the or­gan­i­sa­tion is able to cre­ate good gov­er­nance around what peo­ple “re­ally want” as well as what’s needed when dis­cussing wa­ter­ways.

“Peo­ple who come to the meet­ing will be able to have their say and it’s open for any­one as the whole water con­ver­sa­tion al­ways is,” she added.

The af­ter­noon will in­clude guest speak­ers shar­ing sto­ries about their favourite lo­ca­tions which will make for good lis­ten­ing.

Those in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing are asked to reg­is­ter as to as­sist with cater­ing, and can do so by con­tact­ing Gayle South on 0448 983 109.

The ses­sion be­gins at 2.30pm.
