Business as usual for Landcare
Upper Lachlan Landcare remains a part of the LachLandcare network with the Landcare support contract administered by LachLandcare until the end of June.
The move to LLS has given us a new regional Landcare Facilitator, Peter Pigott (contact firstname.lastname@example.org ). Peter has been involved in organising the South East Landcare Networks Round Table discussion (see Landcare RoundTable ). Nerida Croker (Upper Lachlan Chair) and Keith Hyde (Hovells Creek) will be representing our district as we discuss our new future under the South East Landcare Network.
