‘Reaching Beyond Demo Reaches’ film will put UMDR up in lights

‘Reaching Beyond Demo Reaches’ film will put UMDR up in lights

Our upper bidgee demo reach will be included in an upcoming short film about all the demonstration reach projects across the Murray Darling Basin as part of a NSWDPI project called ‘Reaching Beyong Demo Reaches’.  The film will take viewers on an intimate journey across the basin to meet the fish and the (people) communities which call each demo reach area their home.  It will highlight the importance and success of interventions which are occurring across the basin which are assisting the ongoing survival of our threatened fish (in our case Macquarie perch and Trout cod) and other species.

UMDR Project to remove emerging in-stream willows along the Murrumbidgee River

UMDR  project to remove emerging in-stream willows along the Murrumbidgee River

The UMDR Community Willow Control project was launched with a splash by the Minister for Primary Industries, the Hon Ms Katrina Hodgkinson and member for Monaro, Mr John Barilaro MP, when they met up with project partners and supporters at Angle Crossing on 31st January.  Better still, at the launch, the Minister herself tested the waters by canoeing across the river and trying her hand at the type of work the project will be doing on the river….and no…. this was not the source of the ‘splash’!

Parkcarers of Southern Murrumbidgee - November activity

Planned activities: This month we will be planting if the kind rangers can get us any seedlings. We'll also do some follow up watering of previous plantings if there's no rain, and some woody weed control if we have time. If anyone would like to take photos or record what is flowering and what animals we see, that would also be great.

Please wear suitable clothes and sturdy footwear, a sense of humour, and bring water. If you have a favourite planting or pruning tool bring that too.

Parkcarers of Southern Murrumbidgee - October activity

Planned activities: This month we will be planting again, and we'll also do some woody weed control if we have time. The woody weeds are sneaking back in again so it's good to keep on top of them. If anyone would like to take photos or record what is flowering and what animals we see, that would also be great.

Please wear suitable clothes and sturdy footwear, a sense of humour, and bring water. If you have a favourite planting or pruning tool bring that too.
