From the 21st – 24th September 2008, the North Burnett Landcare Group will play host to the Qld Landcare Conference in Monto. It is an honour to have this event in our catchment and the BCCA are pleased to make a small contribution by hosting two field trips. One hosted by Louise Newman, Better Bush Coordinator it is called “Sip ‘n’ Sap” and the other hosted by Better Beef Coordinator, Katie Sibson is called “Beef, Bunyips and Bonnie Doon”.Sip ‘n’ Sap will look at a BCCA Cat’s Claw Creeper Biocontrol Release Site, look at how Private Native Forestry can enhance Biodiversity and Timber Production, visit a Creeping Lantana Control pilot and finish up with a visit to Warath Winery.
Beef, Bunyips and Bonnie Doon will look at an optimised Leucaena operation, discuss how herd recording improves grazing land management, test your property planning skills, and hear about BMRG’s Water Quality Monitoring Program.
