You are invited to Oolambeyan National Park to view one of the best examples of the Endangered Ecological Community Sandhill Pine Woodland in the Riverina. These woodlands are critical to the health of the region, supporting plants and animals and providing on-farm production benefits when integrated into farming systems.
Find out how best to manage livestock grazing, how to revegetate sandhills through natural regeneration, planting and direct seeding, and the funding currently available to land-holders.
We will talk openly about the challenges and successes of managing sandhills including rabbits, biocontrol, boxthorn and weeds.
There will be demonstrations of boxthorn removal using brush-cutters, rabbit control techniques and tree seeding machinery, plus experts from many different fields available to answer your questions, including ANPC Project Manager Martin Driver.
Morning tea, BBQ lunch and drinks will be provided.
Meet: at Oolambeyan Homestead in the park at 9:30am. Oolambeyan National Park is approximately 90km south east of Hay and 130km north east of Deniliquin, NSW. Entry to the homestead is via the Conargo Road. Please ask for directions if you need them when you RSVP.
