The newly formed Strathbogie Ranges Conservation Management Network held its third gathering on Saturday 5th February at the Euroa Arboretum .  We enjoyed tasty salads and a BBQ before launching into the serious part of the day  . Heavy tropical rain pelting on the roof disrupted the meeting a few times but an excutive  committee was formed and ideas for future directions were gathered. Landcare was well represented at this meeting with representatives from Burnt Creek , Gooram Valley , Longwood East , Strathbogie Tableland , Highlands and Hughes Creek .( See CMN page of this blog for minutes of meeting ) Thanks to the Euroa Arb for sharing their facilities with us , we hope this will be the beginning of a fruitful collaboration .
