Do you own and/or manage land for conservation?
The Kowree Farm Tree Group are progressing a landholder conservation network for those who own and/or manage land for conservation. An information day is planned on the Sunday 6 May following the annual count.
Do you own and/or manage land for conservation? Many people do throughout the Red-tail’s range across south east SA and south west Victoria. There has been an idea floating around for some time and building on the Cockies helping Cockies mentor program to create a network of likeminded farmers to support one another, share information and our environmental passion.
The Kowree Farm Tree Group (KFTG), based in Edenhope, is in the process of setting up just such a network. We think it’s important to run the odd event too and so we propose to organise the occasional get-together to hear an interesting speaker or two or stickybeak and learn from other landholders’ achievements.
If you are interested in joining the Kowree Private Conservancies Network (KPCN) you are invited to:
* Come to a meeting at “Merrin”, the property of Anne and Andrew Craig (Benayeo, Vic – about 65km / 50mins north of Bailey’s Rocks) on Sunday 6 May (the day after the Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo Annual Count). At this meeting we will be discussing how to run this network and what people would expect from it. Lunch will be provided and there will also be opportunities to see around Merrin and hear about the successes and challenges of managing it for conservation.
* For more information, map/directions and to RSVP for catering please get in touch with Andrew Bradey, 03 55873558 or Anne Craig 08 8762 1936 or 0429 167473 firstname.lastname@example.org or Annette Jones email@example.com 0402 209175.
