Stoney Creek Gazette Reader Survey

Monaro Landscape Connectivity project

Having received some good interest from people at the workshop in Bungendore on 1 December, particularly from around Carwoola - Captain's Flat - Hoskinstown, the Monaro Landscape Connectivity project team is now planning to hold the first MLC workshop in this area.

The details for the workshop are not yet finalised, but at this stage expect a 1-day workshop in the Captains Flat valley (ideally on the property of an interested landholder) in late April or early May. The workshop will help land managers to get a better understanding of native vegetation on their property, and also to look at managing it in the context of its connectivity to surrounding patches, through aerial photos and maps (which will be provided to all attendees) of native vegetation types across the landscape around their individual properties. There will also be sessions on Indigenous land management principles, and how people can begin to apply these on their property, if they are interested.

Palerang Council Draft Community Strategic Plan

Palerang Council has released its draft 20-year community strategic plan (CSP).

The plan reflects the more than 7,000 comments received from community members at the 10 forums conducted throughout Palerang earlier this year. Councillors and staff were very encouraged by the level of participation in these forums and the ideas that flowed from them.

The Future of the Stoney Creek Gazette

The Stoney Creek Gazette for the last 25 years has helped draw the community together, keeping people informed of current local issues and events; informing people about living on and managing small blocks; and raising funds to help conduct community activities and pay the insurance for the Community Association. In addition, it keeps Carwoola residents aware of an array of services that are available locally and encourages residents to support local businesses, who reciprocate by supporting the Community Association through the Gazette.

Weed Field Day

20 Nov 2011 - 3:00pm - 5:30pm

With the rain we’ve had this year, everything is growing so fast and lush that it’s hard to tell where the weeds are. Not only that, when you do find the weeds it may be wasting time to spray them because either it’s too windy to spray and therefore drift is likely to affect other plants as well, or it’s likely to rain or the plants are already wet. Can you chip them out? It might be alright when there’s only a few, but a paddock full of weeds is a real challenge! So who wants to waste time, energy and money spraying or chipping when it’s likely to be ineffective?

Why not join the Carwoola Landcare Group and Molonglo Waterwatch Coordinator, Stephen Skinner, on World Rivers Day, 25th September to have a look at what secret life there is in the Molonglo River?

Do you know what a stonefly nymph looks like? What about a mayfly nymph? How do they differ from damsel fly nymphs? Have you ever seen a backswimmer?
