Tributes flow for successful grazier and conservation visionary

Natural Resource Management and conservation agencies are paying respect to the iconic Dockers Plains Pastoral Company, Mr John Paul, who passed away on 9 July.

John Paul had a remarkable love of the Lower Ovens River and he strived to find ways to strike the balance of sustainability and farming, and was committed to managing a sensitive environment while running a grazing operation.


New online facility makes bore applications easier and faster

Landholders and bore drillers can now apply online for a water bore licence through a new service on the Victorian Water Register.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and rural water corporations have developed this initiative, which will make it easier, faster and cheaper to apply for licences to build water bores for domestic and stock use, investigation and observation.


Landcare Promotional Folders available

The North East CMA has produced a Promotional folder designed for Landcare groups to provide to new members or to handout at events.  These are now available free for groups.

Thanks to our Landcare Volunteers

As part of National Volunteer Week this week we are recognising all those volunteers who have contributed many hours of voluntary work and who make such a difference in our community.
