Wimmera Regional Landcare Forum

Wimmera Regional Landcare Forum

This year the Concongella Landcare Group are hosting the Wimmera Regional Landcare Forum and invite you to take part.

The Wimmera Regional Landcare Forum aims to provide the Landcare community with a chance to network and bounce ideas, and learn from one another.  It’s also a chance to hear from innovative landcarers from both within the Wimmera, as well as outside the region.

We hope that by coming to the forum, you will return to your Landcare group invigorated and inspired.

During the day, we will hear from a Wimmera Landcare award winner, the Victorian Landcare Council, and the Executive officer of the Southern Otway Landcare Network Mike Nurse.  Wimmera Landcarers will be the first to hear about the Landcare Resilience Framework Mike has just finished developing.

Also presenting on the day is Graeme Hand.  Graeme manages a farm in Western Victoria and is a well-known expert on establishing profitable farming systems through the adoption of regenerative practices.  Graeme will present on the topic ‘improving soil health at a profit’.

This is a free, fully catered event.  Bus transport is available for Western and Northern Wimmera Landcarers.

To RSVP and for further information please contact your Regional Landcare Facilitator.

Mt William Creek Walk - 2015

At the end of March, an 80 km walk was planned to follow the Mt William Creek from it’s scource behind Moyston, near Kalimna Falls, across the ‘miles’ to the Dadswells Bridge area where the creek joins the Wimmera River.
On a Saturday morning Bernie Rudolph was at the Naters property to greet about 30 walkers. After viewing the dry stream bed among the stately tall gnarled red gums the trek began. Along with the farmers dog, walkers from 7 to 70 years were away. Crossing beautiful farming land that is temporarily very dry, we enjoyed the sounds of kookaburrahs, galahs and cockatoos. Climbing through fences we soon entered the creek reserves and observed the benefits of this more recent landcare management. Mobs of kangaroos were aplenty! Though after 10am, foxes were still roaming ....
