Aboriginal land managers invited to workshop at Menindee

Aboriginal land managers are invited to take part in a free two-day workshop at Menindee next month that will focus on land management techniques and cultural heritage.

Titled Stepping Up To Manage Country, the workshop will be held at Kinchega National Park
on Thursday 5 and Friday 6 March.

Senior Land Services Officer – Aboriginal Communities, Rpnni O'Donnell said the workshops
would include presentations, a property tour and yarning sessions, as well as a bush tucker dinner along the riverbank.

"The workshop is the final part of a program coordinated by Local Land Services Western
Region, in collaboration with Winds of Change," Ms O'Donnell said said.

"It aims to encourage the sharing of knowledge between Aboriginal land managers and for
inspiring some confidence in younger managers who are starting out in their careers.

"We will cover everything from effective land management techniques to fencing, managing feral
animals and protecting and preserving Aboriginal cultural heritage.

"There will be guest speakers to address ways to increase profitability and productivity on the
land, as well as tips for accessing services and support.

"Land managers should leave this workshop equipped with tools to improving the environmental
outcomes and long-term sustainability of their properties."

All meals and overnight accommodation will be provided and bookings are essential.
