All members and friends are cordially invited to join Muckleford Catchment Landcare for a pleasant afternoon tea on Chinaman Creek on Saturday December 15.
This is our final event for 2012 and it will mark the release of a draft of the Chinaman Creek Landcare Plan.
Several months ago Muckleford Landcare surveyed land holders in the Chinaman Creek valley in order to find out what sort of long-term vision they had for this important and attractive tributary of the Muckleford Creek.
With the assistance of Connecting Country and Landcare Facilitator Max Schlachter, the results have been compiled into a draft of a landcare plan for the valley. The plan will become an important reference point and support for environmental work into the future. We also hope that the plan will provide us with a template for similar landcare documents for other parts of the catchment.
Copies of the draft plan will be available for collection and further comment.
We will also announce our application for funding for the first project to take place under the auspices of the plan and other ideas for 2013.
We particularly encourage those who contributed to the plan to join us for this pleasant and informative social occasion so that you can obtain a copy of the draft and help us to progress the document to another level.
Members of Muckleford Landcare will also receive complimentary copies of the newly- released Weeds Identification Guide for North Central Victoria booklet and the splendid locally-produced Central Victorian Grasses identification CD……lots of good reasons to join us!
Where: 149 Creasys Road, Wood brook (between Turners Lane and Woodbrook Road). Look for our roadside banner, park on the roadside and walk the short distance (50 metres) to the creek. Enter from the open gate to the left of the house.
When: Saturday, December 15, 2-3.30 pm.
What to bring: A folding chair to sit on, sun protection and sock protectors!
