“Lue Station”

Lue NSW 2850
Host: Tom Coombes

Lue Station will host a workshop on Thursday 11 May looking at an incised gully in a 3rd order stream. This poses a landscape scale problem with the surrounding floodplains draining quickly and becoming drier. David will explore solutions to rehydrate the landscape with participants and suggest methods on how to reduce the speed and volume of water runoff.

Participants will also have an opportunity to meet members of Bingman Landcare, find out what they do and how to get involved.

9am for a 9:30 Start until 3pm
Morning tea and lunch provided

The field day is free ‐ please register early as places are limited.

Please bring some protective clothing (hats, boots, rain jacket) and water.
