Muster for Landcare in the South East - 2 September 2014
Dear Landcare network representatives and partners in natural resource management and sustainable agriculture,
Please find attached an invitation to a gathering on 2 September 2014 in Braidwood that will bring together Landcare network representatives and partners to meet, learn from one another and acknowledge 25years of Landcare.
The muster is targeted at Landcare network representatives and the volunteers and professionals they work with to achieve landscape, community and industry outcomes - to celebrate achievement including a delicious lunch and look ahead to opportunities for further collaboration.
Les Robinson of Enabling Change will be joining the muster to talk to us about innovative collaboration and help us to think about how we can make the most out of the opportunities we are provided with. Les has run inspiring workshops around Australia and has a long track record of working with community groups and government organisations navigating change.
The intention is to recognise the diversity of Landcare in the South East and the nature of partnerships that have led to success and built our understanding.
Date: 2 September 2014
Location: National Theatre, Braidwood
Time: 10:00 to 15:30

Parkcarers of Southern Murrumbidgee - September activity
Meet: at the Point Hut Crossing carpark, Saturday 9.00am
Planned activities: in Sept we'll finish planting the seedlings left over from last month. We'll also continue to move rocks to build up and strengthen our leaky weirs along Barney's Gully. We may also need to do some watering, depending on rainfall between now and then. If you'd prefer to take photos or do bird or wildlife observations, we'd be happy to have you along too!
Please wear suitable clothes and sturdy footwear, a sense of humour, and bring water.
