Landholders encouraged to share knowledge at upcoming erosion control workshop
15 June 2018
Western Local Land Services is encouraging landholders that attend its upcoming erosion control workshop to share their knowledge and experiences when it comes to erosion control on their properties.
The workshop, which will be held on “Caradoc Station” near White Cliffs on Tuesday, 26 June, will focus on the Ecosystem Management Understanding (EMU) approach, which provides a visual framework to understand landscape processes and how to strategically address these issues.
The workshop will be presented by Hugh Pringle who has worked extensively in the Western region and across the rangelands throughout Australia.
In addition to Mr Pringle, Senior Land Services Officer, Paul Theakston will also share his knowledge of rangeland rehabilitation and erosion control, and he is encouraging all landholders to speak up and share their experiences on the day.
“The workshop will give landholders a great opportunity to increase their knowledge as Hugh is a great presenter with a great deal of knowledge in erosion control,” Mr Theakston said.
“I’m expecting Nathan and Christine Harvey who are hosting the workshop to give an insight into what they do and what they’ve found to work best and I’m hopeful that will lead to other landholders sharing their knowledge about erosion control.
“Whether landholders are experienced in erosion control or it is something they want to get more information about this workshop will be great for them.”
The workshop will commence at 10 am and finish about 4 pm with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.
Please RSVP for catering purposes to Mr Theakston on (02) 6836 1575 or via email.
