The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia Environmental Champions Program (RGA ECP) will be holding a bus tour this Wednesday to highlight the cultural heritage of the region as well as encourage community members to learn about and connect with the Yanco and Billabong creeks.
The tour leaves from the Deniliquin Tourist Information Centre at 8:30am sharp and an hour later will be out the front of The Willows and the Ned Kelly Post in Jerilderie and the tour returns to Deniliquin at 5pm.
The cost of this tour is free and it includes lunch but bookings are essential and can be done by contacting Erika Heffer on 0438 719 628 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project was developed and delivered in partnership with Yarkuwa Indigenous Knowledge Centre as well as YACTAC (Yanco Creek and Tributaries Advisory Council Inc) and it involved collaboration and sharing to facilitate community connections to the local area.
The project is also supported by Murray Local Land Services through the Billabong Yanco Project with funding for the project received from the NSW Catchment Action and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
