Yacka Moorundie Landcare Group to meet at Anama
23 September 2014
The second in a series of three ‘shearing shed’ meetings for the Yacka Moorundie Landcare Group will be held later this month.
The meeting will feature Brendon Bevan from Arkaba Station who will speak about his role as a ranger on Arkaba, tourism and his life in Africa.
Anne Brown from Greening Australia will speak on the Native Vegetation Act, Brevet Sergeant Luke Elstone will provide an update on Rural Watch and local issues, and Ian Falkenberg will talk about owls.
Yackamoorundie Landcare Group secretary Judith Sommerville says the shearing shed meetings have been well-received and aim to provide a family-friendly venue to encourage more members to the group.
“Holding the meetings at 6pm at a family property helps to encourage families to attend, as it means mum and dad can bring the kids and have tea while they’re there,” she says.
“It’s a good, social atmosphere, while still providing a range of interesting speakers.
“We’d really encourage anyone interested in Landcare in our district to come along and be part of it.”
The group will meet at Tom and Anna Hawker’s Anama shearing shed, 407 Anama Lane, 16 kilometres north of Clare, on Thursday, September 25, at 6pm.
Funded and supported by the Lower North Natural Resources Northern and Yorke group, the meeting will start with a barbecue tea. Tea and coffee is provided but please BYO drinks and chairs and dress warmly.
For more information phone Ian Radford on 8845 2179 or Judith Sommerville on 8845 2070.
The next shearing shed meeting will be held on October 9 at Munduney, Spalding.
