A BUZZ is in the air amongst landholders in the Agnes River catchment area who are keen to continue the legacy of restoring the ecological health of the Agnes River, in a fun and social setting.
In April this year, group members Bryan Watterson and Elizabeth Collins hosted popular community ‘Agnes River’ themed event. Guests were treated to a deep listening session and a sunset walk, followed by supper which included a range of delicious local cheeses and homemade treats washed down by a glass of wine.
More recently, members of the Agnes River and District Landcare group have worked with neighbouring Landcare groups including Wonyip, Binginwarri and Albert River to restore the upper reaches of the Dingo Creek. Approximately 1000 trees were planted – a fine example of what can be achieved when like-minded people work together.
To assist with driving more events like these and to create positive new projects, the Agnes River and District Landcare group is set to renew its executive committee.
Existing members have nominated to fill the roles of president, secretary and treasurer. Elections will be held on Wednesday July 20 at the Welshpool Hotel at 7.30pm. The group extends a warm invitation to existing and prospective members to come along for a casual, social dinner at 6.30pm. The election and group meeting will follow at 7.30pm.
