Above, NQ Dry Tropics’ Grazing Field Officer Brad Martin takes Eungella and Crediton landholders through the Maps and Apps course and, below, a group shot just to remember the occasion.
Maps workshop well received at Eungella
Eleven landholders from Crediton and Eungella attended a Maps and Apps workshop at the Eungella Hall last month.
We jumped at the opportunity when invited by Pioneer Catchment and Valley Landcare to run the day.
Not only is it a beautiful part of our catchment area, landholders are committed to undergo projects and training activities to improve land condition and to conserve the natural assets of the area.
Through Landholders Driving Change, NQ Dry Tropics has worked with landholders in this region on a wide range of activities including:
- Soil health workshops to help landholders understand the soils within their production system to inform soil management and grazing plans to accommodate environmental and enterprise requirements.
- Giant rat’s tail grass workshops to help landholders to improve control and management activities for production and environmental benefits.
- Supported the formation of the Eungella Rainforest Cluster Group to adopt a holistic approach to rehabilitate remnant rainforest from bushfires, and implementing plans to help protect it from future threats.
