Landcare seeks waterways input
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.
