A series of workshops will be held for bushfire affected landholders in the Snowy Valleys Council region in October 2020.
In partnership with Regional Development Australia (RDA) Riverina with funding from the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) in partnership with the Pratt Foundation, Riverina Local Land Services will host the workshops which will provide landholders with information to support their recovery journey including environmental and pasture restoration, regaining livestock productivity, and strengthening ongoing producers welfare and resilience. Information will also be provided on the day on incentives that will soon be available via Local Land Services for recovery activities with natural resource management and biosecurity programs.
