In collaboration with Temora Shire Council a Native Plant Giveaway was held on July 29th as part of National Tree Day. Aside from promoting and increasing local involvement in National Tree Day, the aim of the giveaway was to assist in raising awareness of the renewed drive in Landcare related activities in Temora Shire as part of the Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative.
Kate Kirk & Libby Roesner – Condobolin Landcare Coordinators overseeing the project
This project will see a large corridor of farm land restored to native vegetation in the Derriwong & Ootha districts of central NSW. The activities will engage passionate landholders, Landcare, the Condobolin Green Army team and community in undertaking revegetation activities that will connect two threatened ecological communities, providing a significant area of native vegetation to extend existing corridors and increase biodiversity.
Hovell's Creek Landcare has recently employed Nicole Gamme as their Landcare Support Officer. A major part of Nicole’s role is to collate findings on former group projects that were funded by state and federal governments as well as some works funded by landholders themselves.
