End of year events

At Muckleford Catchment Landcare we have been busy completing the Chinaman’s Creek Project and submitting our final report to NCCMA. We are pleased to report that the project, which was several years in the planning and another two in implementation was successful in all its aims and we are looking forward to building on it in the near future.
In the meantime we have several events scheduled to conclude the year. Consider putting them in your diary.

Geology bus tour
If you are curious about the unique geological formation of the Muckleford catchment, the fascinating Muckleford Fault and the valley’s rocks and soils, then this is an event for you.
Local geologist Brian Cuffley will reveal the base layer on which we depend and its role in determining the nature and state of our soils and their conservation.
Brian will give an introductory talk and then we will visit several revealing sites in the area.
When: Saturday, November 14, 1- 5pm.
Where: Muckleford Community Centre, Muckleford-Walmer Road
More details to follow.

Annual General Meeting
We will hold our AGM prior to the Geology bus tour on November 14.
Currently we have a three person executive but no general committee members.
If you would like to support our work your participation as a committee member would be greatly appreciated. The committee meets quarterly so it is not an onerous commitment. Please think about it and let Paul Hampton know if you wish to nominate (0408566909).
When: Saturday, November 14, 11.30am
Where: Muckleford Community Centre, Muckleford-Walmer Road

The annual community event at Muckleford Railway station takes place in mid-October.
We will have our usual stall with landcare information and indigenous plants for sale.
If you can help look after the stall for a few hours please let Paul know (0408566909).
This is a great day to meet new people and take in some diverse local colour.

End-of-year get together
We will repeat the format from last year and meet in The Hub garden for evening drinks, snacks and general chat.
We will outline the many events we have already planned for 2016 and discuss any thoughts and ideas that members can contribute.
Where: The Hub garden, cnr Barker and Templeton Streets, Castlemaine
When: Thursday, November 26, 5-7pm.
